The Didg arrived wednesday afternoon. Though I wasn't there at the moment. I arrived at night, it's really an all rounder i love it. It's like you said clear and warm, very loud and resonant, excellent backpressure, easy trumpets... mmm...
I attached a picture of me with the Didg.... it's so nice....Thank you Tynon for your help and good vibes, good luck.

Hey Tynon, guess my e-mail yesterday scared the postman, the bag came in today! It's a perfect fit for the didge, nice deep pocket on the side , just a real nice didge bag, the only one I will ever need I suspect. Ron is gonna wish he had the padded bag for his munga didge.
Thanks for your help and for the high quality, but I expected no less, Rons didge and the bag sold me., Steve

Tynon. The didg arrived AM the 23rd. It is absolutely beautiful!! It takes ones breath away, no pun intended. You did a marvelous job on it and I am sure My Grandson and his descendants will cherish it always. Thanks again. My best to you and yours...don

Hey Tynon, ......it arrived safely. It is beautiful and I am having a great time experimenting with it and learning to play. Thanks again for all your help and I'll keep in touch. I may have some questions about playing techniques and maybe you can give me some advice. Talk to you later., Javier

Hi Tynon! Last night I dreamed 'bout OZ and didge - playing...And you know what, today the didge arrived! Perfect timing ;-) I like the artwork very much, really enjoy it. The bag is very useful for me, too. After three hours "ooohmmmoooooooeeeeeehhommmmmmmmm......" thank you very much for your work! Greetings, Johann

Tynon, I just wanted to thank you for the didge. I got it last week. I see what you mean about the wood quality, sturdy as a rock and good for beginners. The design is beautiful. I just wanted to thank you again for all of your time and effort. Sincerely, Lonzo
- Mark Tanimoto - Hawaii USA
Hi Tynon, just wanted to let you know the didg arrived today in perfect shape. It's a very fine instrument indeed and plays easily even for someone who's never played one before. I still have to master circular breathing which I learned in my band days many years ago but haven't put to use in well over two decades so the didg has given me new purpose to learn and connect with folks Down Under. Brian's carving work is fantastic and the Goanna is masterfully crafted to reflect it's spiritual connection with Aboriginal culture. I have cared for a wide assortment of Australian animals, big and small, over the years but I don't remember ever caring for Goannas so now I can say I have one of my very own.
Thank you very much for the didg and the padded case.

Got the big bag.It's beautiful.THe cds are great.thank you my friend mike
- Mark Spruce - United Kingdom
Yes, I have Munbilla safe and sound and she truly is beautiful !! It took a while for her to get used to here new home, but she is absolutely singing now. Its funny how plane journeys and the climate change seem to unsettle yidaki's and it takes a week or two for them to acclimatise and bring out their personalities. The art work is stunning and suits Munbilla well. Any more and it would cover over too much of the amazing wood grain, any less and it would not have set it off. Please pass my thanks on to Kristian for discovering her and creating such a beautiful instrument.
Good to hear from you. Good didgin, Mark
- Jeff Hartbeck- Missouri USA
Just got it yesterday afternoon. No worries on the wait. Inner Light is WELL worth it! I can tell already that this one will give me the energy to help my inner light shine. Doug is an outstanding artist. Just looking at it I can see the time and energy he put into this didg. It is absolutly beautiful. You were right, the wood left alone between the snakes is just as much art as the snakes. Oh yeah, it plays like a champ too!! Anyway, thanks agian for hookin' me up with another fantastic didg. You always come through! They all take me on great journeys without even going anywhere.
Peace & Blessings till next time.

Just wanted to say thank you. Steven is enjoying the didg.
Have a great year
20-4-2004 - Stefan Reich - Germany
the didge has landed.
I am really impressed !!! I never played a didge which is so loooooud... It is just great.
As I haven´t played a high pitch didge so I need some pressure to play the basic tone.. but I guess with a little of practise it will be sufficient in a while...
btw : the didge bag is awesome... all my friend are envious...
Tynon thanks a lot again and keep on going to make people happy all over the world...
big hug to down under bro

Tynon - Received
the Didg today. Stunning! Absolutely beautiful! ! ! Nice warm sound. I love
it! I will start listening to the CD you sent with it in the next few days
when I have some spare time.
Wow, you guys do some serious work! This one makes the one I already had look and sound like a toy. I will recommend HeartDidg as THE place to purchase an incredible and functional work of art.
1-3-2004 - Ken la Poma- Jersey USA
Back when I was going with the custom didge idea, I figured that it couldn't hurt to take a look at a couple of instruments that were already done. When I saw the taper of the C#, I was really impressed - that was the main thing that got me, not to mention the artwork. What a big, clear voice! The vocals and harmonics are terriffic, thanks to the big open bore. It's excatly what I was hoping for, and everything you said it would be. I just made one change to it, though. I painted a pair of sunglasses on the old fella to make him look like Djalu Gurruwiwi. No I didn't!
Well, I'm very happy with this fine piece.
Thanks for everything...
23-2-2004-Ian Moorhouse - UK
Hi Tynon sorry ive not been in touch to thank you for the magnificiant dij you guys sorted for me and for trevors as well. He is well happy with the dij he received. Please could you send the details of my dij and trevors e.g type of timber the names etc. if you could send them on a piece of paper so i can use it for insurance purposes,that would be great. I cant believe the back pressure on the dij you sent for me its just a magical dij thanks Tynon again. My dij journey has moved on quite a bit since i was fortunate enough to hook up with you and heartland, I look forward to doing more business in the future, Take care for now mate thanks again cheers ian....
10-1-2004 -Misty Richardson - UK
Happy New Year to you and you family!!!
The best news
is that it came right in time!!!! Xmas eve - I was buzzing, and the best thing
was - Ian was in town when it arrived - so he still did not have a clue!!!
I hid it and presented it after he had opened his other gifts and thought
he had nothing left to open... perfect.
The sound is wonderful and the artwork fabulous, all I can say is Thankyou soooo much for helping me to find a wonderful didg for Ian... He loves the artwork - especially the aboriginal fella's head - smashing!!! So once again Thankyou very much for your efforts,
Ian will be emailing you shortly, he could not stop saying thanks, as it was true surprise for him... Take Care and will be in touch in the future
love and best

Just wanted you to know that I received your box this afternoon. It is wrapped so well that I will not try to unwrap and rewrap for Christmas but the box does not appear to be damaged at all so I am pretty sure it arrived in good condition. I can't thank you enough for all your help and your efforts in getting this to me before Christmas. It has been a pleasure doing business with you. I wish you a Merry Christmas and I know this didg will mean a very merry Christmas for our son. Marsha Goodman
17-12-2003 - Sue Burchall -USA
Got it! Looks
like she's in transit and headed our way. We'll keep tabs on her until she
arrives. I'm so glad we were guided your way, Tynon. You've been a pleasure
to deal with. We'll let you know when the didg gets here.
Peace to you,
9-12-2003- Liz Feistemel- Illinois USA
I received the didges tooday and they are so wonderful! Thank you so so much! I really like the E, the shape the beauty of the grain. Such a capturing sound as well. I really really like the natural too! How neat, it is such a cool cool didg. I love how it's so light, powerful sound, and so easy and really fun to play. Thank you so much for suggesting that one, friend. It is such a treat!

What a pleasure to get the two didgs today. Really makes a Monday cheerful ! When I first saw them on the web I was impressed with the appearence, those
pictures don't come close to doing justice to them in real life. The colors
are so rich.
They are all one could ask for. Can't imagine buying a didg from anyone else now. The price, the fast
shipping, the personal touch, as well as the best sounding instruments I
have heard.....not bad for a Whitefella. Way to much fuss in the States as
to whether your didg is made by an Aboriginal or not. It's the sound that
counts no matter who made it.
Look forward to your next posting to the site.
Tynon, again thank you so much for such a pleasant experience and for you
part in finding these didgs I was meant to have. They have found a good home.
Thanks Friend..... Tony
3/6/99 Emily Wilson-Washington
She was so surprised and excited and she keeps
saying how its the best birthday present she ever got :-)
We just couldn't get over the beautiful raised paint job on the didg too.
You told me about the case but I didn't realize it was going to be that
nice. Thank you so much we couldn't be any happier.
Take Care Tynon :-)
4/6/99 Jack Redwine- California
Yes we got the didge it's great. Just what I was looking for. Sorry I didn't respond sooner. I've been out of town. Thanks again for the great didge.
10/6/99 Gil Hatala- Texas
Everyone is thrilled
with their didges. Mike is in awe of Precious Layers,
enamored by Rainbow Serpent and disbelieving of Horses Hoof. Carrie is
overwhelmed with the beauty, grace, sound and ease of her glorious A didge and
possessive of Flight of Bird. I Think my Drought Breaker and Crocodile Dreaming
are absolutely wonderful. Crocodile Dreaming is like liquid sound and drought
breaker haunts the edges of realities. And on and on. Big Belled B is super.
Chunky is a "hoot". The "Eagle" soars and the E didge caught the man's fancy and
"strong and gentle" fits the man who in many ways is a minimalist.
Thank you again, Tynon.

Well the didges made it safe and sound and I can't begin to tell you how
impressed I am with them. Thank you again for all your support in the
selection process and I look forward to our next interaction. Blessings to
It's good to
know we both feel the same way. My wife and I were speaking
today of the rarity in connecting with people who share the same goals,
visions and values. I feel a deepening need for more intimate, open and
honest heart centred comunication between people. The fact that I am able
to find that on the internet gives me increased faith that as a humanity we
will some day reclaim our sacred duty to one another and most importantly
to our mother earth.
It would be nice
to have a selection of
didges and with honesty I can say that I could'nt imagine wanting to use
another source. You're commitment to making me feel honored and valued as
more than just a potential custamer but as a fellow traveler and spiritual
friend has been deeply heart-felt. I can't express enough the appreciation
I have for the time, energy and patience you've had in working with me thus
far. I only hope that we can continue our connection well after this

overwhelming at times. It loves to blast with confidence, then pull

instilled confidence in me in that I'm not just purchasing so
much merchandise, but gaining part of an evolving spiritual tradition as well as
some instruments that were hand-crafted with much individual care and imbued
with spirit. I really look forward to receiving my "characters." I'm glad that
I was led to your website - I had been looking at quite a few and had almost
placed an order at another site when I discovered yours. Also, as we discussed,
I had be contemplating buying another didg - probably from someone else, just
for the sake of diversity - but our conversation led me to stay with Heartland.
I'll look forward to hearing from you as you work through this next batch of
didgs. I'm really quite eager to see what will appear at my doorstep. You had
offered me the choice of waiting until you post the new pictures on the web or
just allowing you to make the selection. I'm glad that I chose not to wait as
it will add to my excitement not knowing what to expect. I have complete
confidence in your ability to create and select three outstanding didges.

Back home in
one piece and unpacked the shipment a few minutes

beauty and wonderful sounds. Lois is gone climbing mountains today. She
will faint dead away when she gets back and sees this lot. You and Team
Heartland have really gone the extra mile on our maiden project. The
Bagnard/Heffernan subjective scale of 1-10 gives Heartland a 14++ across

20-10-99 Mark Reinheimer -California -USA
received the didg's a little over two weeks ago...they are both extraordinary
pieces of wood. both beautiful to look at, listen to and play...
they are great didg's...the photo for "Didgin in Eb" does not do it justice...what an absolutely great pipe, beautiful wood, the polished inside of the bell is spectacular...and "Big Country" is a very powerful piece of wood in and of itself....it contains a powerful spirit of some sort...one night last week I was playing it literally for hours and could not put it down....and...for a few brief moments, I felt that it was playing me...I was no longer playing it!
Matt Johnston -New York 15th Dec 99
I just wanted to tell you that Iron Strong is the most beautiful didg to ever
have life breathed into it, and that it has an unbeatable sound. *You
weren't kidding about its sensitivity and power* This didgeridoo, along
with the many others on your site, is irrefutable evidence that- with
auspicious aid rather than harmful- man and nature, together, can produce
the most aesthetic and sacred objects. You are definitely a master
craftsman in that you take what nature has produced, and make it even more
beautiful, which is a difficult task. And, from seeing everything on your
site along with Iron Strong (which was breathtaking on your site, but
indescribable in person), it is obvious that you love what you do.
Kris Herzog- Detroit USA 21-12-99
The dij is beautiful! My husband absolutely loves it! And he
interpreted the lines and circles as the dreamtime sacred places and
the paths to them. He's been practicing trying to make sounds. Since
he's been a trumpet player, he has some blowing power, luckily. As
soon as I can get my hand on a camera, I'll send you a photo. And
I'll keep you posted on his progress. Thanks a million!!!!!!!!!!
22/12/99 -James Calloway - North Carolina USA
Thanks for asking. The didg arrived surpisingly quickly. It looks beautiful. It is hidden now. It will be a surprise for Christmas. I hope you have a good holiday season. It is a pleasure doing business with you., James

, The didge is fantastic - love the art work - best complments to munga !
It would be excellent to hook up if/when you visit the uk in Aug.
take care for now bro,
top regards to your, your family and not forgetting munga,
peace and happiness
28/1/2000 Gianluca Valentina - Italy
Hope everything was nice in the bush and that everything is fine with you
We've received the shipment and everyhting went fine. The didges are
beatiful! And Enrico's is a bomb to look at and to play!
The Golden Hollow is fantastic! And it is a great player. It takes a while
to warm up the massive thing, but when you do it has a crispness that would
not usually be associated with a C and it really gives it a unique
characteristic. A top didge, no question about it.
Ciao Tynon., Luca

That's so nice digeridoo,and very playable, good looking.

I've received Fire and Fight only two days ago and I can tell you that I
did not write you because I was too busy on playing it to be able to
concentrate to write this e-mail.
It's simply a wonderful piece it was exactly the instrument I was looking for.
Thanks to you John and everyone there in Heartland didgs to be such clever;
I can feel the print of your energy in this prodigious player, very
rythmic, percussive, punchy and round, simply the best high pitched didg
I've ever heard.
You'll be always a part of my musical experience, and for this reason my
9-3-2000 Irene - Holland
How are you? I hope that everything's ok.
You were right about the date; you told me that I'd probably receive my
didg at wednesday 8th march and you were right, I received my didg today!
Yesterday we got a phonecall from the courier-service; they said that there
was a package from Australia for me and that they'd deliver it the next
day, wednesday. I was very happy and a bit nervous too. I thought about my
didg the whole day and even dreamt about it. When I came home after school
today, my mom said to me: "close your eyes" and when I opened them in the
livingroom I saw the package, my didg had been delivered!
I immediately started opening the package and then there was my didg!!!!!
We all found it even more beautiful than it was on the photos, the colours
are so beautiful in real and the painting of the Goanna is really
wonderful! My mom's made some photos while I was unpacking my didg, I'll
send them by e-mail as soon as they'll be developped.
Thank you very very much for bringing a didg into my life. It really feels
good and I'm sure that playing on my didg will be relaxing to me. Also
thanks for the little message and the letter included with my didg, I
enjoyed reading them. Also thanks to Anthiam again for the cover which
she's made for me, it's really handy and it protects my didg when I'll take
it with me.
I'll send the photos as soon as possible!
Lots of thanks, keepwell,
Lots of greetings and best wishes from Irene!
PS Also thanks for sending my didg so soon; now I can show my didg to all
my friends on my birthday!

Tynon, Turtle Dreaming arrived this afternoon in perfect condition. Duty in
Los Angeles was a very modest $12.84.
Tynon, it's a beauty! I gave everyone here at work a very short demo. Er, ah,
well I do have some practicing to do...
Thanks for the excellent service. Regards. -Charles Fendrock

22-6-2000 Martin Tighe Iceland
The didj has landed! Im delighted with it, havent had the chance yet to
really get to know it, but on first blows it seems great. Ill let you
know how I get on with it, after Ive taken it home and really tried it out.
Thanks for everything Martin.
Ive hardly taken my lips from the mouthpiece. Im really impressed, this
didj has the potential to make even me sound good! As you said Overtones
and vocals are effortless. My main worry was the back pressure, but I
need not have worried. No problem at all in maintaining a full sounding
drone. My main "problem" is just getting used to how responsive it is. No
doubt about it Tynon, this is a quality instrument - more power to your elbow.
Thanks once more for your craftsmanship and service,
Ill be in touch,
25-7-2000 Nicholas Woodhouse, Virginia , USA
I received the didgeridoo today. It looks and sounds great. I've had a
blast playing it, and all the time and effort you all have put into it
really shows. I am glad I ordered from Heartland. I love the smoothness
of the wood and its light golden color. The shipping container protected
it well, and it was not damaged at all. I cannot wait to play it tomorrow. Thanks
so much for all your cooperation. I will keep you updated with my didg
journey, and I hope everything is well with you and the Heartland family.
25-7-2000 Mike Mc Dougall Ontario Canada
It has arrived. Wow. This was worth the wait!!! Where should
start. I guess I should thank you profusely. I appreciate your efforts.
It took me a minute to find the best buzz out of it, but when I did, wow!!!
It's incredibly responsive and boomy. The pitch is right on the money. I'm
extremely pleased all around. The elligance of the natural wood is
beautiful. I'm itching to play now. I'll write back when we're better
aquainted. Thanks a mint, Mike
25- 7 -2000 Dale Heath California , USA
Hi Tynon - didg arrived Fri. 7/21 and was able to pick it up Saturday all
very smooth, safe and sound. I shared the ceremony of opening with my wife
and son everyone being very excited and all were 'rapt' when it was finally
revealed, wow. Pictures only hinted, in person absolutely beautiful so
detailed and so powerful...a strong didg. All in all it exceeded my
expectations. The other aspect that really concerned me was playability and
I think is oddly just right, not too easy not too difficult with room to
grow. Thanks so much I couldn't be more pleased. Compliments too on the
didg cover. Keep in touch.
Gregory Horn - United Kingdom
Hope you enjoyed your time in the bush.
I received my didge yesterday, and WOW, WOW, WOW. It is absolutely fantastic, my dream didge come true. I love the combination of natural finish at the bottom complimented by the bare wood at the top, and the art work is just great. Thanks a lot mate, it certainly was worth the wait and the many emails to get it exactly as I wanted. The sound is also excellent although I now need to spend many an hour to get to grips with its true abitity and potential which I am sure is just waiting to be uncovered.
Please also thank all others involved and of course to Anthiam for the superb cover.
7-10-2000 Highland Onoue - Japan
I received the didgeridoo today. She is a BEAUTY! Plays excellent, I love
it. No problems with the shipping. Thanks again and I hope that we can keep

Tynon, the didge,CD and the very nice cover came yesterday morning(monday)
So very fast delivery, everything is fine and this didge is just
wonderful, an awesome work of nature(and man).
It plays much easier than the bamboo one I have.
Thanx for everything,be well and I can't wait to extract some nice sound out
of it(just like the ones I heard on the CD).
Take good care.................Sergio

8-11-2000 - Kim Covington -California USA
I want to thank you for all the help that you have given me in picking out my didge. I have checked out tens of web sites and hundreds of didges but when ordering on-line it all comes to who gives you the most information and who you can trust. You and Heartland have gone to great lengths to give me all the information that Ive requested and gone above and beyond the call of duty to supply me with just what I was looking for. Cant thank you enough.
10--11-2000 Greg Weil - United Kingdom

to be the most solid material i've seen in my life. thanks again,
take care, Greg

thousand thanks to you Tynon and your crew.You've made me one ultra happy
dude.I can really relax now.
Its the first time I have purchased over the net so I hope you understand my sweat.
I think my didg has travelled about 12000 miles to get to me.I give you and your mob,Tynon,12000 thanks.It is not only just what I wanted but more.Special thanks to Anthiam for the wicked bag,that took some making,but mega thanks to you Tynon for your skill and experience in choosing and making,in my opinion,one of the "mothers of all didges". Now I start the journey of loving and playing Big un E,but I assure you that our journey is far from over.
Speak to you soon bro, Yours humbly , Mark
26-11-2000- Daniel Johnsen, USA
received it almost the same day you sent your mail. It is going to be
my most treasured possessions and will keep it and pass it down in my family.
Its so much more beautiful then any picture can show.
I cant wait to learn circular breathing and the clap sticks are great.
I hope to learn to play from the heart .
Will keep in touch with you mate, later for now.

Jim Dees - a present for Tim Morris - USA 10 Dec 2000
Even more so than I'd expected!
And yes, I am very happy with the case.
The texture, feel, and color all seem very appropriate to what's inside.
The quality of the paints, the details...very nice
I just received
one of Munga's didg's as a gift and I love it. My good
friend Jim Dees gave it to me as a token for introducing him to the
wonderful world of music making. I havn't had it for 24 hours yet, but I
think I've played it more than my pvc didg's I've had for years.
The craftsmanship is impeccable and the artistry, beautiful. The tones I
am getting are incredible. Please pass on my compliments to Munga and his
wonderful lady, Wendy, for making my carrying bag. This is a gift that I
will treasre all my life...the gift of music.
16/12/2000 Tammy Mabra Texas, USA
The didgs have arrived & theyre beautiful! I really love the artwork you did, very inspiring. I also enjoyed the process of the creation it makes my connection with it that much stronger and more special. Ive had it about an hour now and am making some sounds that seem didg-like, so I think things are looking up. Brad and I are planning to get together next week and go over the basics.
Thank you for all of your time and hard work, especially in this busy time of year. I hope the holiday season isnt taking a huge toll on you...its been pretty overwhelming for me, but Im hanging in there.
May you have a lovely Solstice/Christmas/Hanuakkah and a happy new year!
Well, the didgs arrived here in Austin on Friday. I would have written sooner but I ended up having to go out of town for the weekend and didn't get to spend much time with them until
First off, let me just say THANK YOU!! These instruments are absolutely beautiful. I couldn't be more happy. Before I even played them, I knew I had made a good decision :) The quality of the wood and the time and love that went into making them is very evident. They stand out as magnitudes better than the didg I've been playing. And they both sound wonderful.They are exactly what I was hoping for. The Earth Rhythms didg is great for playing fast rhythms. It is amazingly easy to play and I love how even the most subtle vocals and tongue movements come through so clear! Its no wonder I couldn't do fast rhythms on my other didg.. it just couldn't transmit the subtleties easy enough. And Eagles Flight is a monster! I expected it to be big, but wow is it heavy. That is one serious log. I love that deep sound. It has wonderful character. I played it for a few friends and their jaws dropped at the huge sound that came out! It took me a while to get used to playing it, but I realized that it just takes a little longer to get it warmed up than this small didg I've been playing.
Once I really got into a groove with it, I knew it was exactly what I had been wanting. You were right when you told me these 2 didge would get me the sound I had originally described for you. Earth Rhythms is a joy to practice my rhythmic playing. I can't wait to play it with my friends that are into drumming. That should be fun. And Eagles Flight is perfect for deep relaxing trance.
You'll definitely be hearing from me again when I'm ready to expand my collection some more. Its been a pleasure dealing with you and I'm totally satisfied with the quality of instruments you are selling.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot, the didg you made for Tammy is amazing.
I wish you could have seen the look on her face when she first pulled it out of the bag. We were both stunned. You did a wonderful job on it. I know she is very pleased with it. I'm going to be spending a lot of time with her in the near future trying to help her learn how to play. I know she has the desire, so it shouldn't take her long.
I don't know if I told you this before, but I actually try to make music in my spare time, and am planning on making some recordings using these didgs in combination with drumming and ambient synthesizer sounds. I'd love to send you a copy of any music I make using your didgs. It may be a few months down the road, but I'll stay in touch and let you know when I've got some stuff recorded.
Well, I guess thats it for now. Thanks again Tynon and I'm sure I'll talk to you again soon.

Dearest Brother Tynon,
Thank you so much for putting Heartland together. I've been playing didge
for about 3 or 4 years and had been looking for an authentic Mallee or Box
Gum didge just as long. I've been playing on Bamboo which was great to
start with but the time to move on has come.
Today I received "Salt Water Tidings" as a Christmas present from my
girlfriend Dania and I almost burst into tears. I feel blessed to have come
across your site. Indirectly, I feel like I've touched the hands of
yourself and all of the Heartland family. The didge was definitely calling
to me and I can't seem to put it down. Thanks for everything and most of
all thanks for treating my lady with care and respect through the buying
I love you all. I plan on keeping in touch...and I will probably buy all my
didges from you. I hope that someday we can meet in person.
With much love and respect,
