Didgeridoo...who knew-s? Looking for a unique part and a better vocabulary. :)

Post by Greg Evans »

Hey guys. New to the forum, but a long time maker of goofy noise makers and bad jokes. (knew-s ...knows....never mind.;)

I checked the forum data, but I don't see many didgeridoo post. I was hoping that someone may help me find, and or suggest where to look for a part, and hopefully, give me some better search terms to feed the Google machine.

I will try to explain.... (see attached pic if I can figure out how to attach one.)

I have built several one piece pvc type didgeridoos in the past, but I may be attempting to build a take apart, wooden, travel didge, soon. What I hope to find is a male to female pipe-in-pipe fitting, where the inner pipe has some o-ring(s) to keep it airtight and solid. (no slop) Similar to the way a clarinet goes together. (I may go down that cork path, if I have to..idk) I have seen the type of "coupling", on the high end didgeridoos online, so I am hoping that it a readily available part. Does any of this make sense? I would appreciate any suggestions where I might find this part, or even what it may be called. I've fed every search term I can think of into Google. I am also open to any other ideas about how else to achieve this connection.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

I have never seen such a fitting commercially available. However, it would be relatively easy to make if you had a metal lathe.
