THE CRYSTAL DIDGERIDOO
A crystalline appearance and an exceptional sound!
A new didgeridoo came into existence in 1999, born of a marriage of ancient Australian traditions and high technology. Gaudry Normand has developed this new version of the didgeridoo. He shapes them by hand on a glass lathe. He uses a high-quality glass which contains a substantial amount of silica, the component of quartz crystal.
Crystalline material vibrates easily, as can be heard in instruments like the musical glasses. However, ordinary glass contains less than 50% silica, whereas the crystal didgeridoo is made using a high quality glass containing over 80% silica (SiO2). This gives the crystal didgeridoo an exceptional sound quality, with clear harmonics and a pure tone.
For purists, we also offer a model made of 99.9% silica.
By playing this instrument while using certain techniques such as ‘crystal breathing,’ you can let go and dive deep within to reach a peaceful silence. The crystal didgeridoo is a therapeutic instrument which tones the lungs and helps eliminate tension from the body, while simultaneously increasing vitality.
According to experienced didgeridoo players, the crystal didgeridoo breathes new life into the world of wind instruments.
We invite you to come experience the sound of the crystal didgeridoo at a Unison® concert, held during our special event days. If you wish to purchase a didgeridoo, our staff will be happy to help you, in our special demonstration room.
