Buying a didgeridoo for sleep apnea for the first time can be overwhelming - it's an uncommon instrument and you are going to use it as a device to get rid of your medical condition.
But fret not, here are some tips on where and how to buy a didgeridoo for sleep apnea.
The following websites are good places to start:
- eBay (Ships Worldwide)
- Amazon (Ships Worldwide)
How Much Does a Didge Cost?
Didgeridoos come in a big range of prices, from as low as $25 or so for a plastic didgeridoo to over $2000 for a traditionally made one by a famous didgeridoo craftsperson.
For most beginners though, a mid-range, reasonably priced didgeridoo should be sufficient. This means a didgeridoo priced between $50- $500.
Make Your Own Didgeridoo
If you wish to venture out more and take it a bit more personal, you can actually make your own didgeridoo and save a few dollars.
The materials you need are a plastic pipe, a hacksaw, a file, a sharp knife and beeswax for the mouth piece. The easiest material you can use for your didgeridoo (and that you can find in your local hardware store) is a schedule 40 PVC pipe. Choose one that has a 1.25" or 1.5" diameter.
- 1. Measure and mark the appropriate length on the pipe, between 45-62 inches long, and cut the pipe using a hacksaw.
- 2. Using the file and knife, smooth both ends of the cut tube and remove any rough edges from cutting.
- 3. Mold beeswax over one end of the pipe for your mouthpiece.

You now have your very own hand-made didgeridoo. The choice of a store-bought didgeridoo or a homemade one is entirely up to you.
Recommendation for Beginners
As a recommendation though, beginners should start practicing on a store-bought one so you only have to focus on getting the technique right instead of worrying if you made the right type of didgeridoo for sleep apnea.
