The custom making process is the most enjoyable and exciting aspect of didg making, for it brings together the nature of all didgeridoos being individual and all people being individual.
It strengthens the relationship between the buyer and the didgeridoo and the land where it is from, by being connected to the process of its creation, as well as enriching the relationship between the buyer and the maker, which bodes well in many ways. There is so much more information shared between the buyer and the maker in the process, ensuring the right result and the best didgeridoo. How else can I put what is often an amazing process.
Over half of our didgs don’t make it onto the net. The demand for quality instruments most often has us with orders being fulfilled from buyers descriptions and desires, for as quick as we make them they’ve found a home. Of course we’d always like to be one step ahead on the stock levels ,as it is exciting when we’ve got enough didgs to release some more for the Internet Catalogue. We are happy to put focus towards Custom orders, however because of demand occasionally it means a bit of a wait (not always though), but that can be part of the fun of the journey.
So if you have a clear idea of what you want, or would like help refining that, and are up for the journey ,we are ready to search and support your didgeridoo project into being. The photos and info on the internet are part of the process of helping you find your didg, but if its not there, there’s a chance we’re just about to finish it or we’ve got just the log to make it from.
A Custom order will generally take 3-12 weeks from order, but it can often take longer. Sometimes a totally open time frame is needed. Depends on what your after.
We ask for a minimum deposit up front of A$300 with a guarantee for you that we will return all funds if its not what your after. So effectively if its not what your after I will cover freighting it home. Very very costly for us. Or we will have it replaced with another that is what your after. So I will ensure your 100% satisfaction.
We have never had a custom order not work out.
If you’d like to enquire as to whether we can bring forth what your looking for, please consider the following in clarifying your desired didg.

The more details you provide the better. Also let us know what factors are have to’s and what factors are preferences and what factors are flexible. Keep in mind though, that if your list equates to it being quite a process to find and or make the exact one, this can effect the timing & price. I find the most successful custom order processes are those where the buyer is clear about there needs whilst being open to what else presents itself. This is the dance of didg.

Didgeridoos ex Custom orders are priced the same as all our didgs. In other words there is no loading or extra .The price is however still finalised once the didg is complete and we give no guarantee that it is the same as the guesstimate. It generally is but sometimes in the final stages a lot more work is put into the making or painting or it ends up far surpassing the playing quality imagined. Of course if we are working to your needs on a desired budget we will offer a couple or a number of options, to ensure we have what you want. If the scope of what your wanting includes many many aspects or is along the lines of “The sound must be the best you’ve ever heard” (Taken from a current custom order), then of course we need no expectation on price. We don’t load it for the sake of it but fairly price it within the range of quality and pricings. The same applies for any “Collectors Item” Didgeridoo. Whilst structuring our pricing to reflect the quality and energy put in, we do however keep our prices at affordable and reasonable levels for the passionate player.
VERIFYING YOUR DIDGERIDOO
Is done by the above process itself and backed up emailing photos & or a phone call so I can play the didg/s over the phone. Sometimes we even make 2 or more options to select from. When we go all the way in making sure that were sending the right didgeridoo ,its then guaranteed to be the one.
It is generally to you within 2 weeks if ready to go.
