Slaperoo Percussion – a company that specializes in unusual percussion instruments – shared this sneak preview of the SlapStick Didgeridoo – a new instrument that turns the didj into a percussion instrument.
The SlapStick Didgeridoo is a hollow metal tube that can be played like a traditional didj. It also incorporates a high-tension steel strap on the top that can be tuned to a pitched and played by striking it with your hands or with a drumstick.
Here’s another video demo, where the SlapStick Didgeridoo is used with a Digitech RP1000 effects processor:
No official details on the SlapStick Didgeridoo have been announced.

This looks cool as hell! In fact, few years ago I had a bizarre dream about a mutated percussive/woodwind/string instrument, that worked pretty close to this thing (except that strings were patched to vents/fingerholes of the woodwind part, but, ehm, dreams can be pretty non-realistic) , so it’s a weird de ja vu for me
How is a didge tone picked up?
something for jamiroquai
My humble opinion as a didge freak.very bad sound and quality, we are in 2014 .a low and poor copy of andy graham inventions, check him out. That thingy doesn’t worth a dollar
I think this is an andy graham invention…
Yep! it is! -Andy
