I was so surprised by how realistic the Thunder Drum sounds and it IS well made. The photograph is upside down so that may confuse some folks. This instrument is perfect for my needs (special effects sounds) and i use it often and am proud to have it in my collection. A child can easily play the Thunder Drum, but perfect for adults too. The most fun is experimenting with the Drum; I have found that by setting off the thunder drum by pulling the spring and then waving the drum from side to side extends the sound and adds variation controlled by how fast and slow you go. This instrument does not require extreme movements or YANKS on the spring. I have found that gentle control produces the best sound and variation for me. The waving, slow then a little more quickly really sounds like rolling thunder.
I was excited to receive my Kalimba Thumb Piano to add to my musical instrument collection. The appearance is great, even better than the picture online. I have fun just sitting in the living room playing it. The tones were easy to figure out. My only critique is that i wish it were louder. I mainly collect and play percussion and string instruments, so this was something new for me.
