Burton Yirdaki's the Earth's Soul and Spirit in your hands, instruments that will bring a breath of fresh air into your life!

Finally after a lot of thought I have decided (still with slight regret) to sell my private collection that I have been collecting since my Journey began in didj making. These are amongst the finest Instruments I have ever crafted and played!
