Lightning carving is a unique process that exposes carefully selected timber to high voltage currents, which carve along the timber's natural grain. Only the finest, naturally grown Australian timber is prepared for the lightning carving process.
Timber for each didgeridoo is sourced from traditional suppliers in North Queensland, and their accompanying stands are sourced from within the Yugambeh region.
Our Australian opals are sourced directly from miners in Lightning Ridge, where opal deposits occur in deeply weathered Cretaceous rocks formed 65-135 million years ago within the Great Artesian Basin.
The opals are then set into the didgeridoo's natural timber cavities, and those formed through the lightning carving process, to produce a unique and brilliant finish.
Lightning Didge didgeridoos are high quality instruments. The timber is hand selected based on the quality sound that it produces, using traditional techniques.
Each of our didgeridoos produce their own unique sound, and the instrument mouthpieces can be sealed with a natural wax.
The process for creating these unique, quality instruments is a combination of traditional methodologies, and modern art.
Each didgeridoo is handmade in Yugambeh country by local artists.
