I have long since abandoned the partly very elaborate and time-consuming painted designs for my didgeridoos. I naturally fulfil special request from customers. I now almost exclusively coat the instruments with several layers of high-gloss lacquer. This creates an intensive deep gloss, which accentuates the grain and texture of the individual types of wood.
This very elaborate lacquering process also further increases the sound quality of the instruments. This lacquer even has advantages when caring for your instruments, because even small scratches can be easily removed using standard car polishing paste. Some of the instruments are even stained in mahogany look or mahogany with a transition to black before lacquering. But look at the photos for yourself.
You often have the feeling that you are holding grand piano or piano in your hands and playing didgeridoo on it.
