  • Absolutely Amazing and sounds so real!

    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.

  • varied uses

    This, along with the Worldstock rainsticks, was bought for a tiny grandnephew who of course loved anything colorful and noisy. Surviving for a year or so, the thunder drum was used in a Good Friday service at a church pastored by his grandparents. Quite dramatic. There are probably future uses that I cannot foresee. Maybe bartered in a playgroup for something noisier. The bottom line: a success.

  • Very very cool and unexpected

    I gotta tell you. I bought this for my daughter. The picture threw me off a little when she opened it for Christmas. You see, the picture has it upside down. Anyway - This Thunder Drum sounds like thunder. It absolutely amazed us. Thanks for supporting the outside world and offering such unique gifts. Much appreciated...

  • Thunder Drum

    This is one of the coolest intruments I have ever seen. I bought it for my kids but I want to play with it myself! Good quality and sturdy, great value for the price! If you love storms as much as I do or you just want a cool-sound effect piece (that's cheap!) to add to your collection, buy this! Very, very cool! I think I'm gonna get another one! (P.s. It can be loud or soft depending on how you use it)

  • A lot of sound!

    "BOOM!" "CRASH!" Don't play this near the cats! Very simple to use, lots of variety in sounds. This is great for dramatic intros or outros to a piece; can record a bit hot if you don't give it its proper space.
