Spirit Gallery Summer Update

 

 

As we approach our busy Summer period here at Spirit Gallery we thought it’s time for a quick update.

 

We now have almost 200 didgeridoos online. A range of prices, styles and keys to suite players of all levels.

 

We have just uploaded some new didgeridoos from Wix Stix with his much improved epoxy resin finish making his didges look and feel a million dollars!!  Also, some new Iron Bark didgeridoos and the intricate painted and burnt didgeridoos from Eugene Goolagong. A great new bunch of plain beginners didgeridoos are also now online, available both in natural finish or a painted finish.

 

We also introduce our newest maker Peter Sherwood of Natures Vibes. It’s not often we take on new makers but Peter has ticked all the boxes for us and fits in perfectly into to Spirit Gallery range.

 

Peter Sherwood has been crafting didgeridoos for over 10 years. Residing in the Rockhampton region of Queensland Peter focuses on his local timbers with a preference for the Yellow Box and Bimble Box Eucalyptus types.

 

Peter’s didges are a throwback to old style didge making. Tough solid didgeridoos finished with a classic thick strong gloss finish to highlight the natural grain and beauty of the timbers he uses.

 

Peter also employs some serious chisel work on the bell ends to open the sound up leaving us with a beautifully crafted Natures Vibes Didgeridoo.

 

In the next 2-3 weeks we are expecting more didgeridoos from  Adam ( CrookedStixz) Henwood, Tristan O’Meara, Kristian Brenton and Heartland Didgeridoos.

 

We now have over 350 paintings available online including new work from Anna Petyarre, Dulcie Pula Long, Debra Nangala and new pieces from the Warlukurlangu Community Art Centre.

 

Our exclusive gallery artists Rex Winston Walford and Anthony Walker remain extremely popular and have a variety of styles and sizes always available. Rex Winston is also available for custom orders with quick turnaround times of only 2-4 weeks.

 

Spirit Gallery will remain open every day throughout December and January only closing on xmas day. All didgeridoos and artwork are available online or can be viewed in the gallery if you prefer to visit us.

Didgeridoo in The Iranian Desert

A couple of years ago while visiting Australia from Iran, Pooria Shafieitabar entered our store and was fascinated by the didgeridoo and decided he simply just has to have one.

 

He promised he would take the didgeridoo back to Iran, learn how to play and maybe one day send us some footage of him and his friends jamming Iranian style.

 

We love the didgeridoo being played in unusual, unseen settings. Add the backdrop of the Iranian desert and we have exactly that.

 

Video below !! Thanks for the footage Pooria. Much appreciated.

 

 

 

Spirit Gallery Update and Northern Territory Didgeridoo Trip

The team at Spirit Gallery has been busy again finding you the best Eucalyptus didges Australia has to offer. Matt and Reno flew up to Darwin visiting several of our didge makers and choosing and sourcing some seriously good sticks.

 

We were also lucky enough to spend a day with Tristan O’Meara in the bush looking for didges giving us a whole new appreciation of how tough the work is – including the nasty sting of the green ant! (see photos below)

 

So stay tuned as we get some new handpicked didges from Earl Clements, Yidaki from Arnhem Land and our new affordable plain didgeridoo range.

 

YES, the only didge store to go that extra mile!! and you the customer benefits!

 

 

In other didgeridoo news, we are expecting in the next few weeks

 

• 15-25 new didges from Kristian Benton- Australia’s most recognised player, maker, artist combo.

 

• 15 new didges from CrookedStixz Didgeridoos.

 

• A whole bunch of new didges from Tristan O’Meara.

 

•10+ new didges from master craftsmen Bruce Rogers.

 

• Our new very affordable heavy duty oilskin didge bags in 6 different styles and sizes.

 

 

PLUS much more we can’t talk about at this stage!!!  It will be a didgeridoo bonanza here at Spirit Gallery over the next few months.

 

Finally, If there is a special key, style, size of didge you have been looking for and can’t find it OR if you just want an AMAZING DIDGE (ie the best we have) let us know and join our “AWESOME DIDGE” waiting list.

 

Spirit Gallery has pretty much all the top active full time didge makers in the country represented under the one roof and hence the largest range of high quality Eucalyptus didgeridoos in the planet- by far!!

 

As soon as we find what we think is that special didge we will let you know and give you first opportunity. We already have a waiting list for several keys so let us know ASAP.

 

Happy didgin!!
