Hello every one once again
this is my second note on this great forum for didg stuff!

i bought an agave didgeridoo sometime ago (llike 6 month or so)
when it was new it had a really nice sound and i really had fun with
the instrument

but right not i am experiencing some sound
issues with the instrument such as (i think) cracks or some kind
of "air escaping" from some where some how :))
let's just say that it isn't sound like it was before when it was new

i saw the builder of this particular didg use probably a "candle wax" to seal the
holes so i ask you guys what should i do now
do i have to pour some new candle wax on my didg
or can i use some other stuff in order to have a good seal
for my instrument
any suggestion will be accepted hope to get some tips about my
issues

ohh and some other problem which i have know idea how it happened
at the bottom of the instrument at the "bell" part just at the end
i found a signs of some sort of "creatures bites" LOL let me
show you what i mean with a pictures so you can see better
what i mean i wonder if any of you had the same bad experience before

that's it for now

Good old two-part epoxy makes agave nice and bright sounding.

Nice close up - looks like there is some creature poop there too.

Looks like it could do with another coat of epoxy over that damage and may be run down the inside to cover any cracks, it'll deal with any critters that may be in there too.

I'm assuming that it's already epoxy coated anyway? If it's not try and find out what it is on it and re-coat it with that.

Hello Ariel

Please reduce the size (to about half the size of this one maximum) of your photos before uploading them and compress them so the file size is a lot smaller.

When they're so big they make the whole thread run off the side of many people's screens. Compressing them is necessary as firstly, they take a long time to load if they're so big, and secondly they take up a lot of space on the server.

Thanks !
