Loretta-

What is it about Milliput that you like so much, as far as mouthpieces go? A well-shaped natural mouthpiece on a yidaki is quite comfortable.

Not all yidaki have well shaped natural and comfortable mouthpieces on them. And as for most didges coming out of Australia, extremely few of them do.

Also Milliput Superfine White is extremely smooth and has very little friction, so your embouchure can easily move on it as you play. I used to play classical brass and it's very much like playing on a brasswind mouthpiece - perfect.

You know, when you talk about Milliput or other chemical entities being "vegan" or "organic" that benzene, gasoline, etc, etc, are also organic.

I suppose it does have its merits, but I really do enjoy playing on either bare wood or a slight smear of wax. The big volcanoes of wax common with generic didjeridu are less than ideal; the problem if there is too much wax is how the inner lip deforms when heated and softened from playing, which compromises drone definition and articulation.

I think you can adjust a great deal to a slightly awkward mouthpiece that's not TOO off size and still get a raw traditional sound as you become more experienced and find the right sensitivity with the lip, but it is clear that you do enjoy those Milliput mouthpieces. Personally, I don't care to alter the cultural authenticity of my yidaki and mago in that way.
That being said, I have played agave and yucca didgeridoos with epoxy (but not Milliput) mouthpieces which were then sealed in a glassy epoxy layer--- super smooth and comfortable. Ever play an instrument like this?

My own aspen split-and-hollow has a russian olive MP and the whole instrument is sealed in a high-gloss epoxy finish.

Hi Jason

No, never played those. If i got one i'd end up putting Milliput on it anyway as there's very little chance a didge maker could make the mouthpiece exactly as i want. It's not just about size. Bite, internal and external radius, and rim width all play their part, and with Milliput i can get these to exactly what i want and keep them there permanently as well as having a super smooth low friction finish to it.

If i did get a maker to make a didge for me i would only request the inside diameter to be where i want it, the rest would then be set up by myself using Milliput.

As for authenticity, i play instruments as a musician. What's important to me is that the instrument is set up to play in it's optimum way for me.

Loretta, have you found a good method for coloring the white Milliput?

This link: http://www.milliput.com/cgi-bin/yabb/Ya ... 1106750000 talks about powdered pigments and liquid colourings. Just wondered if you have found the perfect balance, or if you just keep it white.

Thanks,
Allan
