You gotta see the Spitting Cobra didge!
LA Outback just listed ten new, stunningly handsome agave didgeridoos by Robert Remington on the website. Our listings include HD video demos for every instrument. Read further down to see the didgeridoo I named ‘Venom Fever’ which features a real spitting cobra sealed beneath the resin.
Robert recently retired from a career as a goldsmith and jewelry designer which he began at the encouragement of his stepfather, the late Frank Polk, a renowned sculptor and founding member of the Cowboy Artists of America. Robert’s interest in the didgeridoo began after research into the benefits of playing the instrument as an alternative therapy for sleep apnea.Robert Remington with his wife, Sally, and his latest quiver of agave didgeridoos.
Having an extensive background in woodworking, he decided to craft his own didgeridoos from native agave plants, abundant in the Southwestern deserts of Arizona where Robert has lived for almost 50 years. Robert’s didgeridoos are carefully tuned and given their own artistic touch to make them not only quality players, but a true works of art.
Robert’s most unique didgeridoo creation… not just for the slinky curves rarely found with agave didges, but also a MASSIVE 8′ BELL and a REAL SPITTING COBRA sealed beneath the resin –– what a collector’s item. We’ve never seen anything like it before. Signed Remington raw agaveand numbered. DEADLY in both looks and sonics. The photo on the right shows Robert with this agave stalk just minutes after harvesting it. This is the EXACT stalk that he made ‘Venom Fever’ from (the didge pictured above). Now you get an idea of how much work goes into one of these beauties.
Robert says, ‘From the canyons of Southern Arizona to the sub-Saharan deserts of Africa and Asia comes the marriage of an agave stalk and a spitting cobra to create a unique, one-of-a-kind didgeridoo.’ We concur.
