Hi,
I've a question about the "optimal" humidity level for look after a Yidaki.
In my house in Rome is 60-80%.... I think that high humidity is best of low. The temperature have secondary importance....or not?
I'm curious to know the level of humidity and temperature fluctuation througout the year in the area of Yirrkala....
have a "meteorologist" in the house?

Hi , I've only ever had a did that I've bought for about 25 quid. Not very expensive! And the one I like to play on has a mouthpiece which is smooth/rounded on the outside, but has a sharp edge which forms the top of the bore where I put my mouth. Is this common with 'proper' didjs? Or is the mouthpiece completely rounded? I guess I could pad it out with beeswax but I don't know how to do this and still have a good shaped hole for blowing into.

Any help/advice would be awesome.

Hi Jimmy

I usually prefer a real inner edge (vs a round one) because it helps to bring out the toots better and makes articulations crisper. It shouldn't be so sharp that it hurts while playing though, and if that's the case, I take off a tiny bit of the edge with sandpaper but just so that it doesn't cut into my lip anymore.
Furthermore, beginnners tend to press their instruments far too strongly against their mouths which cuts of circulation and makes it more difficult to play.
