PVC Multi Drone demo
Francesco Gibaldi is an Italian Multi Instrumentalist who watched the instructional videos below and replied with a demo of what he created. Thanks Francesco!
PVC Drop Octave
Building the cheapest alternative for players who don’t have access to woodworking tools. This video instructs how to make a basic Drop Octave didgeridoo using 1.5” PVC pipe.
also covered is shaping wax for the mouthpiece on PVC instruments, for more on this visit Mouthpiece Design in the Crafting Technique tab
PVC Multi Drone Part One:
Instructs how to shape a mouthpiece designed for the Multi Drone technique using a heat gun and sander to achieve an oval opening with a concave face. This exact piece of pipe fitting is just one example, the possibilities are endless so play around!
when part one, shaping the Mouthpiece is complete, the next step is assembling a series of pipes that opens up the frequencies of multiple drone playing. Simply put, the shape starts with a very tight bore and quickly moves up to a long “bell” or wide section. This shape makes at least one but usually more drone notes playable between the drop octave and the normal drone.
