As much is this is termite eating eucalyptus, the termites hadn’t quite done their job properly so I split it in the same way as I work English Woods.
The rockhard dence wood and the wide bore of this instrument means the sound comes through with thick chunky resonance. The vocals come through hauntingly and loud. This instrument would be great for classical meditative bouncy rhythms, very enjoyable to play and easy to get along with.
This is Woolly butt eucalyptus harvested in the Northern Territory’s near Darwin Australia. It was eating out by termites and then shaped by hand with long chisels.The name Wooly butt comes from the woolly substance that grows around the base( butt ) of the tree which deters small woodland creatures from eating the bark.
