Paulownia didgeridoos

April 16, 2009

didgeridoo

Pitz Quattrone stopped by Rocky Dale to collect last year’s Paulownia trunks.  He creates didgeridoos out of them- a wind instrument that produces a vibrating resonant sound when blown into through quivering lips.  We tried it out with little success- better to hear Pitz play with his group the Earthman Band.

    Alright, Didjs’ from Paulownia!

    Just one thing: how do you get the hole down them?

    I was given a piece of Sapphire Dragon which had a small hole down the center. Is there a species that has a larger hole?

    Cheers, JT
