    Backpressure: the resistance of air you feel from the inside of a didgeridoo while you are playing it. Usually small diameter tubes have more backpressure and large diameter tubes have less. Good backpressure allows you to circular breathe more easily and be efficient with your air flow.

    Harmonics: the didgeridoo has a fundamental key. Harmonics are higher frequencies found within the fundamental key. They can be manipulated by the placement of your tongue while playing. For example, while playing the didge position your tongue like saying the letter "e", but do not use your vocal cords. This will create a harmonic.

    Vocals: vocal response is the ability of the didgeridoo to project sound from your vocal cords while playing the drone. Usually larger diameter didges have better vocal response than smaller diameter didges.

    Volume: the amount of sound that is produced.

    Includes: didgeridoo, small padded travel bag, instruction DVD, and instruction booklet. Our 2 hour long jam packed DVD has many in depth didgeridoo exercises and playing methods.

    Didgeridoo sleep apnea and snoring? How does playing help?

    Researchers in Switzerland examined 25 patients who suffered from snoring and moderate obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, both common sleep disorders. Half the group were given daily 15 to 30 minute lessons in playing the didgeridoo. The study, published in the British Medical Journal's online edition found that those who played didgeridoo over a four-month trial period saw a significant improvement in their daytime sleepiness and apnea. Their partners also reported less disturbance from snoring. The researchers said training the upper airways through the breathing techniques required to play the didgeridoo was behind the improvement. "Our results may give hope to many people with moderate obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and snoring, as well as their partners," the report's authors said. While results may vary, we have had customers get back to us. They report that our didgeridoo was easy to learn to play and get the circular breathing technique. They also have seen an improvement in their conditions.

    How long each day do I need to play the didgeridoo to help with sleep apnea and snoring?

    15 to 30 minutes a day.

    How do I play it?

    It does not require a lot of pressure or force to play, you don't blow hard. It is a relaxed lip vibration (like giving a raspberry) that creates the tone. Anyone can play it, your height does not matter. Our 2 hour long jam packed DVD is included with this didgeridoo. It has many in depth didgeridoo exercises and playing methods.

    Customer Testimonial 4/11/2012:
    I was diagnosed with sleep apnea about two years ago. I followed the usual path of getting hooked up to a ventilating machine which, for me, was a bit of hell on earth. I know people who regain sleep and dreams again because of the machine, but I had a different experience. I went through several different masks and nostril pads trying to find the right fit without success. Even though it was a quiet machine, the sound of air pushing through the mask made a Darth Vader rumble that caused my wife to sleep in another room by the third night. I often found myself awake listening to the swoosh of my own breathing. And when I did sleep, I sometimes woke noticing I wasn’t breathing, waiting for the machine to engage, to force air into my lungs, until I finally realized I had better take a breath. After a tired month of trying, I packed up the machine, called my doctor and asked for a different approach. He was unsure what else to suggest. “That’s the gold standard,” he said. “Yeah, those machines are expensive,” I said. “No,” he said. “it’s the gold standard because it is the most rigorously studied and proven approach for resolving apnea incidents.” “But it doesn’t work for me,” I said. “There’s got to be another approach.” He referred me to a research article that claimed didgeridoo playing helped a small group of patients reduce their apnea episodes. “Why don’t you read the article, follow the regime it lists and let me know how it goes for you.” I figured that if practicing didge for 15-30 minutes a day could reverse my sleep-apnea and keep me off that machine, it was worth trying. I ordered my first didgeridoo online. The results have been life altering. I have more energy throughout the day. I sleep better at night, and I dream again. It took about a week of playing 30-60 minutes a day (I was a bit of a zealot—I wanted to be healthy again!) before I noticed a change. I don’t know anyone who plays nearby, so I watched and listened to YouTube videos (thanks to all of you out there teaching so generously online!). I didn’t worry about sounding good. I just experimented with sounds and kept the drone going. I eventually learned circular breathing, and that opened up the possibilities. I continue to play for 15-30 minutes everyday, although I miss a day or two every now and then without any noticeable difference in my sleep. But I travel as part of my work, and occasionally have missed several days in a row. Each time my snoring has gotten louder and I begin feeling run down. But after a day or two of practicing, I return to sound sleep. I just ordered the travel didge and am very happy with its tone, light weight and packability. Thanks so much for your innovative design. The didge continues to be good medicine for me and a lot of fun to play--wherever I go! ~Doug

    I own a lot of didg's, and been playing a long time. Most of the plastic / PVC instruments sound pretty horrible. But I have to say, this one sounds fantastic and even records well. It's shockingly responsive for what it is also. I got one of my students to get this model and got one for myself to check it out. I love it! I take it out for any gigs that don't require authenticity, and you really can't beat the price! The only issue is that they are not built to last. The threads to wear out as you put it together and take it apart often. I will be replacing mine soon after a couple years of use. If the plastic were tougher ABS style plastic, this would be perfect. I'd be happy to pay more to avoid more landfill!!!

    Nice travel didg

    This is a very compact size when taken apart. It gives nice tone and has really good back pressure. The bell end is really good sized. It is PVC but for a fairly nice looking, easy to assemble, very portable unit you can't go wrong. It is designed so you can change keys by removing sections. Frankly, not all the keys provide the same quality sound, but hey, what do you expect. The DVD provided is fun and useful.

    Travel didge good way to start.

    I am a beginner who has never played before. This Didgeridoo is made of thin plastic. Threading the D to E section gets crossed threaded at times. Sound is good but my slide didge from TDS is all around better made and sounding. I can hit the horn easier and circular breath easier on it all while playing it in better sounding keys. I prefer their slide didge over the travel one.

    For the Price...It's excellent!
