For Sale an outstanding yidaki by Milkay.

Unpainted, showing beautiful woodgrain stringybark eucalyptus- Stand up on its bell.

147 cm lenght, 2,5 diameter natural mouthpiece, 12,5 cm bell, copletly natural bore, no chiesel work on it! Relly dense and solid, weight 7,5 kg.

Bring the traditional neal raw sound. This is the more traditional yidaki I've ever played.

I am selling the last instrument of mine collection to invest in a different project. I had bought from the didgeridoo gallery in the uk back in the 2002, probably the instrument itself dates back to the lates 90.

Here you have some simple video for the sound:

The didge is sitting in north of Italy, can deliver worldwide at buyers expenses. I will provide a bombproof packaging!!

For any question please don't hesitate to contact me.

PRICE 420€

Hi

Your yidaki is interesting.
Do you have the certificate or indication that it was crafted by Milkay Munungurr ?
Thanks

David

Hi David,

I've bought this yidaki from a didgeshop in the UK back in the 2002. The Didgeridoo Place in Norfolk, United Kingdom www.thedidgeridooplace.co.uk

It was listed in their archive section on the web, unluckly their website is no longer active, I have found in this link the mention about their shop http://old-content.mulka.org/yidaki/resellers.html, honestly I have not bought from Milkay personally and I don't have a photo showing Milkay with this F yidaki, so I can't be sure 100%, but but I bought it from a professional seller 10 years ago (when he was alive) and I have no reason to doubt about its provenience.

The yidaki is stunning, and I think that everyone who is searching for a Traditional yidaki in F won't be disappointed!

If you have any further question let me know.

Good vibes to all-

Ale

It was listed for 600 GBP.......and I don't regret the purchase.

It is an unpainted yidaki, but I was looking for a powerful and traditional F, the natural inner bore show the great termite work, no chiesel needed on it! The wood is dense and solid and the instrument is massive-

Hope this help.....

Ale

Thanks it helps :)
Again questions : was this stick originally varnished or was it done by yourself ?
Concerning the mouthpiece : was it beveled around by yourself after the purchase ?
I am asking because this is not a feature of aboriginal crafters to do so.

The yidaki was varnished when I bought it, it is a kind of satin finish, but definitely not intrusive..... The flash on the pics has a pretty strange effect.
The mouthpiece is not bealved, once again is just an effect!

I don't know why this yidaki shows this varnish job on it, maybe it was ment to have a proper artwork and then was sold before to collect money...I am not sure!

Really I had some nice yidaki and this is a special one, I can guarantee this!

Good vibes,

Ale

I just popped in for the first time in a while and thought I'd pipe in that there's nothing about the mouthpiece or the finish that is inconsistent with Milkay's work. I have two (the two on the Hard Tongue Didgeridoo artwork) and they're very different from each other, but one has a similar mouthpiece to Ale's and also started with a similar finish, even a bit shinier. He (or more likely his wife) only painted the bottom part because I told him he should cover up some ugly knothole patches on it. Milkay was not an artist, and was more interested in sticks as instruments than art, so unpainted instruments by him are totally normal.

Heck, I might buy this stick myself. :)

Thank you Milawuy.
I understand then you are most probably the original seller of this stick via Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre.
I have indeed seen similar ones in archives : )

Nope, if it was 2002, that's before my time, when Jeremy Cloake was there full time. I arrived early 2004.

It's funny for me to look at that archive page. I bought 2536CI. :) Funny story - it's the only yidaki I ever bought specifically because I didn't like it. Milkay did like it, so I tried to play it a little every day at the art centre to learn from it, then decided to keep it. It ended up on the cover of 'Hard Tongue Didgeridoo' and on the 'dup' exercises. I still have it, and was playing it a couple days ago.

I wasn't aware until now that the archive pages are still around - it's a nice trip down the memory lane indeed as one or the other stick passed through my hands as well - good memories!
