The didgeridoo arrived safely and in record time. It looks great and although I don't know much about didgeridoos
this is the one he indicated an interest in so I'm sure he'll love it.
FYI there was no duty on it but it was opened and inspected at customs and

I received your Meeting place! It is a wonderful Didje!
I was playing the didje and I enjoy him a lot.
Thanks a lot for the interest. Enjoy the bush. Love.

The Didgeridoo arrived this morning and my husband collected it from the courier - an early birthday surprise!. It is stunningly beautiful, both in appearance and sound. My husband said he was "blown away" by it (no pun intended). I have no doubt he will treasure it.
Thank you so much for such terrific service! Kind regards

Just wanted to let you know, I received my new didgeridoo about a week ago. Since then I can't seem to put it down. Its beautiful and it plays and sounds excellent! It the fourth authentic didge I've purchased so far. I began learning to play about two years ago. Playing the didgeridoo has developed into a passion for me. There's just something about it. Its therapeutic for body and soul.
The 'Bungarra Fight' is my current favorite to play. Its easy to play and the harmonics, vocals, everything sounds great. The drone is deep and rich.
I still have much to learn to play the didge, to get as good as I want to be. I live in Hawaii (Oahu), and unfortunately, there is not a big didgeridoo community here. I've tried to find other didge players here, but with little success. I'd like to hook up with some other players and maybe pickup a few pointers. I was wondering if you have made sales to other people here in Hawaii?
My only access to buying didgeridoo's is over the internet. I wanted to mention that the Didgeridoo's you offer on your web site, are some of the best looking ones I've found. IM sure I will probably do more business with you in the future. Much mahalo for sending me a very quality product.
By the way, if any of you ever make it over here, look me up. I'll give you a personal island tour.

Oliver's didge arrived safe and sound, and it's a thing of real beauty.
Oliver is thrilled with it.
Even more exciting is the fact that he was getting respectable and quite
thrilling sounds from it within five minutes. His immediate comment was
"Well, you won't have to make me practice on this. I love it!" This, from a
boy who never wants to practice piano.
The instrument itself is gorgeous to touch. It feels almost alive.
Thank you so much for all your advice, your patience, and for a didge that I
know Oliver will always treasure.
Tony Fisher ~ New York ~ USA
The Dream arrived today! Looks fantastic - thank you!! It was actually a strange feeling to open it up......Once I learn it I am sure it will sing a few nice notes.
My brother sent me some learn to play info so hopefully I will learn soon. I am off to Chicago without the family for a couple of
months so I am looking forward to it keeping me company! Thanks again,
Michael Harrison ~ Terrigal NSW ~ Australia
I've recently received one of your didges and I am thrilled. For ten weeks, I have been learning on a Jarrah didge from the Territory.
The bare natured didge I bought from you was my first purchase. It sounds great and I've grown into it. The drone is so 'true' and the overtones are great fun to play around with.
I love the volume of it and when I get my vocals sorted out it'll sound great. When the new one arrived, my son was lamenting the Jarrah didge going back to it's owner.
He'd started to enjoy it. Two weeks in and he loves the sound of your didge and even sits down and has a blast himself.
Talk about killing two birds with one stone. I love it and thank you.
Christopher Harrison ~ Ballarat Victoria ~ Australia
I have received the didgeridoo now and have played it for a couple of days. It is a beautiful instrument and a very nice craftsmanship.
It is really fun to play and once its warmed up it almost feels as it plays by itself. :-) Its easy to produce "oinky" sounds which I like.
Thank you very much for the extra mouth pieces. I also want to mention the packing, which seems to have been made with
extra good care. Thank you once again for everything, I will recommend you my friends.
Take care and keep up the good work! Best regards
Daniel Grut ~ Stockholm ~ Sweden
Oh man, I'm in love with another woman!!! She has warmth, tone and when she gets going I'm hypnotized.
I just can't believe the difference in "The Tiger" as I've affectionately named her. My old Kakadu mass produced Dij has nothing.
The funny thing is I can't get a decent note out of the old one now, the technique used to get "The Tiger" going is so different and I can't remember what I did to get the old one humming.
Anyway, thank you thank you thank you. You have a beautiful family Olivier, you're a lucky man.
If you're ever down Margaret River way and you'd like a bit of bush to put up a tent or light a camp fire and blow a few tunes please ring me, we'd love to have you down.
Take care and all the best.
Adam Moir ~ Margaret River ~ Western Australia
The Didge is amazing, looks great and plays great.
Overall, I am super super happy !!!
Dani Diamantstein ~ New York ~ USA
I want to thank you for giving me a new friend to my home in Norway.
It is a bauty to look at, and the sound from it tells me that we are going to grow together for many years.
I can only thank all in your family for getting me a such beauty. I will take very good care of it, and I will use it for many years!
Thank you Vicki, Kerry, Julie and Olivier
Geir Hasselberg ~ Drammen ~ Norway
My brother David Moir bought a Didge from you last week and I have fallen in love with it. I had a look on your web site but there is not much there,
I was wondering when your next treck out to the bush will be to search for more as I am very keen to get my hands on one.
How does PB304 compare to my brothers? I would definitely be interested in looking at the other Didges you have in your workshop but I am in no hurry so I am happy to wait for the new series.
I would really like one in C if possible, I liked the deep tones of the one of David.
Thanks for the reply Olivier and I look forward to owning one of your beautiful instruments soon.
Adam Moir ~ Rivervale Perth ~ Western Australia
Thanks, it really is beautiful and finally made it to the little village
where I am living.
I have tried it but must admit I need to find out how to really play. Best regards.
Christophe Ayer ~ Timashevsk Krasnodar Krai ~ Russia
The didge has come and im over the moon it is sensational once
tuned it is going to be great i have spent the last week sanding it down to
get it ready for more work .What i do need to know though is would it be ok
if i made up a bees wax polish for the outside of the didge? is that how you
have been doing yours ? many thanks and happy didging
Beauden Eldridge ~ Uralla NSW ~ Australia
I received didge # PB 284 yesterday and I am very pleased with it. It plays well, and the hole that
is has when covered changes the tone. Its like 2 didges in one. Thanks very much.
Caspa Harris 111 ~ Bluemont Virginia ~ USA
Dear Wandoo Team. I own and play PB285 in C now for one week and I feel ready to give you a feedback.
What a marvellous Didg! Exactly what I hoped a Didg of this pitch to be.
Exceeded my expectations.
In Detail: the first and last is the drone. You know best that if there is
no substance in the basic drone then burn the stick. And this drone is
absolutely "fat". It's full, rich and easy to play from the first moment on.
It fills the room, vibrates the walls.. great. The character is smooth and
supports the slow tunes I like to play. And this higher overtone
that goes with the playing is very nice and clear with this instrument.
Technically and playwise the stick is perfect. Easy to handle, great voice
resonance, harmonic overblow, just perfect. I like the moderate backpressure
very much. It allows a lot of effects, smooth percussive playing and goes
perfectly with my favourite slow "heartbeat" tunes. It also allows fast
playing (which with this instrument is a sin, as far as I'm concerned). It
takes some air yes, but man, if you can't breath, try the guitar :-)
Next it had one extra for me. There is a "pft"-like kind of spitting sound
that for instance Ash Dargan often uses. I tried that in vain so far. And
you know what.. it works with this Didg.
And it passed the final test with flying colors. When my wife first heared
it, she said: "eh, that's really nice. Resonates the root chakra (indian
medicine stuff I suppose). I like it."
So I don't expect this one to be my last Wandoo Didgeridoo. And the one
problem you will have when I come back, is: my expectations will be huge.
Jens-Olaf Jank ~ Paderborn ~ Germany
You guys you are wonderful person and this is the reason why your
instruments sounds like no others......you put love and passion in
what you do...
Thanks for all and i wish to all of u a great 2007 Hoping to meet soon
Friendly ......your italian brother
Saverio Smeriglio ~ Ancona ~ Italy
My brother Tino received his didge on 27 November 2006 in South Africa, one week after it was shipped from Australia. Howzat!!
I was in contact with Tino by phone within 20 minutes of delivery of the parcel. He obviously tried it out straight away and said that it was a wonderful instrument.
He told me later that within 48 hours he was playing as if he had it for years, and that for the first time he understood what "drone" and "back pressure" meant.
Remember, we are talking about the stubborn man, he taught himself to play on a "Bali special" (or as I would say, a glorified stump!!)
He left shortly afterwards to go on one of his extended "extreme adventures" into the Baviaanskloof.
The Kloof (meaning "canyon") is a world heritage site and is well-known for it's wilderness/adventure/eco tours. It is a favorite amongst those who wants to get away from the rat race.
The didge accompanied Tino to his remote little farm at the edge of the Kloof, where it will wait for Tino to return from his foray into the wilderness (which include swimming/kayaking through the canyon and better for little didge to stay dry!!)
I think this was the beginning of a long and interesting life as the companion of a rolling stone...
Thanks again for everything - I am sure Tino will be back soon with more news about your intrepid little traveler!
Erni & Tino Smith ~ Nahoon East London ~ South Africa
The Tiger Snake is amazing! Beautifully crafted, balances well and is so striking with its detail and sound.
I love it! Thanks for all your help and prompt delivery! Cheers
Glenn M Howes ~ Sydney NSW ~ Australia
Well, I don't believe this, as I write you, ........My 2 babies arrived THIS MORNING!!!!!
at 10;30, I was shocked, I did not expect them till at least Friday, you sent them on their way on the 27th, and they are here on the 29th!! .....
this is unbelievable!!! Australia to the USA, in 2 days flat, I thought I was dreaming, by the way, speaking of "dreaming" my Big Fat Baby Travelling Dream is absolutely "DREAMY". Kerry's artwork is hypnotic in person,
it was this that drew me to this piece in the first place.
I am also happy to find out He plays as good as He looks, a good strong drone, and responsive player, love this Stringybark weighs a ton!!!
I am also very happy with the bore treatment, that will probably last a few years. The Bare Nature B is also what I was looking for ; lighweight, natural, beautifully haunting deep cavey drone the tone is just great,
alters me almost instantly!! With a little adjustment to the mouthpieces,
I have been playing them all day, It thrills me to see them in my Quiver now, thank you all for making such quality Didgeridoos at affordable prices,
may God bless you all!!!
Robert P. Aliano ~ Howell New Jersey ~ USA
Hello you lovely lot.
The didge has arrived safe and sound. It's EXCELLENT, fantastic sound qualities; so responsive, it plays so well. Also love it's weathered look, all those little holes and dark "bark" patches give it real character!
I love it!!
Many thanks and much love from us all
Paul Hay ~ Kingston Upon Thames Surrey ~ England
The "tiger snake" arrived last Tuesday.
It's a very beautiful piece, unfortunatly I don't play didge but I will
try to learn it soon! Greetings.
Paul Jacoby ~ Ermsdorf ~ Luxembourg
I GOT IT FINNALY :)))
I had to go to Faro Airport Customs to get the Didge...and pay some taxes personaly!
Its an amazing Didgeridoo!!!... very well worked, i like a lot the goana head.
Now i can start my DVD lessons with Alastair Black, my MP3 lessons with Ash Dargan and of course DJALU GURRUWIWI vocalized and played lessons.
A long way is ahead for me!
Thanks a lot and a very BIG HUG for all Wandoo Team.
Luis Miguel Pires Picolo ~ Algarve Faro ~ Portugal
I am just dropping a line to you to let you know this didge is amazing me every day! I haven't even got him a month yet, and he has already made me a better player!!!
I can toot easier, play faster and quite effortlessly he is FREAKING ME OUT! What a responsive instrument! I told you guys previously that I had three other really nice collector class didges in the price range of $600 to $1000 dollars,
they are all great players in their own right, but this guy has become my favorite, seems like I can play him longer without getting tired as fast, I think the wooden mouthpiece has taught me something new, and thats what it's all about, learning in stages.
He's just beautifull to play, hold, look at, ......the whole nine yards, as we say here in America. I get excited when I think of all the future possibilities HE will show me , HE has changed my playing forever! Believe me, HE has found HIS soulemate,
I just had to share this with you people, He's become my favorite, WHAT A TEACHER!! Thank you again for letting him go , Now I understand why the decision was so hard. I'll be watching your website in the future, for perhaps some more MAGICK!!!!
Robert P. Aliano ~ Howell New Jersey ~ USA
I well received my Bare Nature didg and again after depacking I was realy astonished holding such a beautiful baby in my hands, what a particular appearance !!!
and an inspiring "spiritual" sound. Each time I am playing with him I can not resist the attraction of the bell, which brings me in immediately in contact with mother earth,
with the Australian forest, with the roods this instument was harvested from. This baby gives me a great feeling of gratitude and modesty.
I was allowed to acquire three wonderful Wandoo didges now and just like with "human children", it would be unrespectful to make any comparison,
each has his own personality and amazing inspiring energy.
I am convinced that all three of them will join and guide me on beautiful journies.
Dear overseas friends, many thanks for the human relation we have built in such a short period, It is a joy "buying" (I consider it more as a transfer of energy!!) from you.
I hope this will be the start of a deep and warm friendship.
Very kind wishes from (rainy) Belgium.
Freddy Van Der Heyden ~ Mere ~ Belgium
Dear Olivier, Vicki, and the family and Staff at Wandoo: I received my Didge#PB255 Bare Nature Bell yesterday!,
that was so fast, he left you on the 17th, and I got him on the 21st! . Australia to New Jersey U.S.A., in 5 days, fantastic! You guys packed him so well, he arrived in pristine condition. I had a feeling that I was unpacking something very special, so I asked my wife to help me with the bell end, so I would not break anything, in my hurried excitement!
I am 57 years young, married 32 years and been playing the guitar for 25 plus years. I also play Indian Cedar Flutes. I fell in love with the didgeridoo sound some 5 years ago. I got my first real didge 2 years ago, E flat, Blood Wood, and have been practicing almost every day since about an hour or so a day.
By now I am circular breathing, double breathing, vocalizing, barking, growling etc.,
and having a ball! I'm so glad I never gave up with the beginner CD I started with. The pleasure is just now starting!
Now, let's talk about Didge PB255................WOW and Double WOW........What an incredible instrument!
He is a perfect example of a Mallee didge, the long length, the beautiful tapering bore, the mouthpiece carved in the didge itself, the HUGE BELL, pretty rare! How lucky am I? The tone, warm drone, harmonics, and power are everything you promised and more! At first I was a little worried about playing a wooden mouthpiece,
I have 2 other collectible class didges, big bores, in keys of C and D sharp, with bees wax mouthpieces that I have been adjusting over time, but no problem, I started playing him like I had him a year already. The drone kicks in right off and I can already hit the first toot with ease, can't toot easily, or at all, on the bigger bores.
Having this C sharp with the ability to toot easily is something else! I love the lower keys. I think I'll leave the mouthpiece as is. This didge has it all, you can pump it out, or blow it meditatively. UNREAL!! With more practice I'll be hitting that second toot! The price was very reasonable for an instrument of this caliber, I'm estatic!
I got exactly what I was looking for this time, plain, no art work, just the way he grew, and what a GORGEOUS BELL!! A real top shelf player, he is very unique and will be played often, can't seem to put him down (you know the feeling, ha, ha). He already has a special place in my Quiver, I like the included CALM control number of my didge, nice touch!
I know I've said alot, but I had a lot to say about my total experience with you and your company, it has been EXTRAORDINARY! Thank you again for letting him go from your collection to mine. I feel blessed. Hope to do business again with you and your company in the future..... Best wishes.
Robert P. Aliano ~ Howell New Jersey ~ USA
Dear friends. It has been a long time talking to you. Nevertheless most of the time when playing my didge friends I feld connected to the overseas spirit and energy.
First of all some feedback on my bungarra dream didge: the crack problem has been settled nicely and seems unther control whithout any influence on the instument caracteristics.
I realy love this fellow; he is so beautiful but even more I adore his sound. Although the first time I tried playing, I had an very odd experince.
I could not produce a propper sound at all, it was as this new friend was laughing with me, saying dear freddy yes I will release my full potentials but first you have to exercise a little bit harder.
I said ok then and so started a more regular training programme. Indeed my friend hold his word, and now we seems to be an jolly pleasant team enjoying ourselfs greatly.
My passion for the didge energy is still growing so I started a money saving programme as to get a new friend into Belgium .
As I trust you fully, I entirely rely on your advice for my next acquisition. This should be complementary to the two in my possession (key, exploring possibilities, I like high pitch and bare wood mounthpiece ).
At first sight canditates could be pb255 or pb276. Or should I first fully explore the actual one and temper my impatience !
Please give your vision and advice.
As a last point to consider : It would be nice that all Wandoo didge players could play simultaniously on a special day as to combine inforce and spread
our energy off kindness and love thoughout the entire universe.
Freddy Van der Heyden ~ Mere ~ Belgium

Saverio Smeriglio ~ Ancona ~ Italy
What can I say? It is wonderful! :)
I have received this masterpiece today. As I opened the box, it revealed
itself with a great smell of Australia. I am very happy, it looks more
beautiful as I hoped. I look face to face with Kerry's Bungarra during play.
The sound is also great and despite its deep voice it is easy to blow.
Thank you very much and respect all of you.
Wish you all the best!
Adam Meszaros ~ Budapest ~ Hungary
I send thanks to your team for your didgeridoo's quality, that's a very good thing which some people continu this art.
Without you I think I'd not have the possibility to play with the real instrument.
I've not yet the mine but put some $ each mounth to can buy it :) So, I wait patiently.
I've a question please, Do I speed to buy some one? Your stock can be at 0 sometime or not?
I'd like take the Bungarra but he'll certainly leave before
I've money :).
Sorry for my english I know I'm difficult to be understand.
Yet thanks for your work you've my respect, peace
Jean Pierre ~ Paris ~ France
Dear Vicki, Kerry, Olivier
I received a Desert Colours about a week ago. Sound is great and
Digeridoo looks much better than in pictures.
Thanks a lot -- Best regards
