These 7 yucca didgeridoos may all look similar, but each one plays totally different has a unique resulting sound. In this video we play the same rhythm on each one so you can see how they compare. All 7 of these instruments were crafted by Myke Gomezmaicas​ in California. We have been working with Myke for many years now and selling his instruments because his craftsmanship is of the highest quality. These are epoxy-coated yucca didgeridoos with custom fitted wooden mouthpieces. You will notice in the video that some of the mouthpieces flare outward while some flare inward. The main difference we have found is that the wider mouthpieces that flare out are better for side players and the thinner mouthpieces are better for straight players. That being said, it is all based on personal preference and you may find your own unique way to play. Check out the difference between each one in the video.
