The didgeridoo is a wind instrument that was developed by indigenous Australians in Northern Australia around 1,500 years ago. This instrument is still widely spread around both Australia and the world. Often described as the natural wooden trumpet. Musicologists identify the didgeridoo as a brass aerophone.
There have been no reliable answers to the didgeridoos exact age adding a mystical feel to it. A modern didgeridoo is typically conical or cylindrical, and can measure 3 to 10 feet long. Most measure in at about 4 feet long. The longer the instrument the lower the pitch or key of the didgeridoo will be. However, more flared instruments play a much higher pitch opposed to an unflared instrument of the same measurements.
