Adam Henwood (aka Swaami) of CrookedStixz has been making, playing, teaching and performing with the didgeridoo since 1996. But his main passion is in the crafting of quality didgeridoos. Over the years he has experimented making didges in every way possible using many and varied materials.
He has spent endless hours focusing solely on sound production, trying and testing many tapers and shapes and surfaces, learning the intricacies of each shape and the pressures and tones associated with each different style. He uses many different timbers including bloodwood, mallee, box, redgum, ironbark and stringybark with bloodwood being his personal favourite.
CrookedStixz didgeridoos was launched in a tiny outback shack gallery 20km from Katherine NT in 2005 with Adam and Beswick elder Eddy Ryan. Since then and since the passing of Eddy it has become a Victorian based business focused on producing high quality beautifully crafted musical instruments to suit all budgets and playing styles.
The “primo” range from Adam would rival any of the top makers in the country and he is fast gaining a reputation as a master craftsmen.
An obsession with the didgeridoo with a huge passion and love for what he does can be seen in every CrookedStixz didgeridoo. We are proud that he has chosen us to be his primary outlet for CrookedStixz.
