LOVE this drum! It is a slight bit heavier than I had anticipated, but this is great because it will not break easily if tipped over. Marvelous size, easy to carry around, and perfect for holding in my lap anywhere I am and releasing all the days' stress with just a few beats! So easy to play, requires no training, just tap with fingers on side of drum, or "palm" one hole at a time for a more bass sound. Experiment with closing hole partially through all the way to create different pitch to the rhythm. LOVE IT!
I play this udu drum with two larger udu drums and it sounds great for it's size. This drum is a great deal and made a nice addition to my set. It is high pitched, short sustain, but puts out enough volume to hang in there with two conga players. I only gave it 4 stars because the little stand that it sits on doesn't hold the drum very tightly while playing, otherwise I would have given 5 stars. This is a real musical instrument and not just a tchotchke (1. a small object that is decorative rather than strictly functional; a trinket.)
This drum is great, very heavy with beautiful tones. It would have gotten 5 stars from me but the ring for it to sit on is poor quality....a Styrofoam ring poorly covered in ribbon. I am going to recover it and make it a little more attractive. This is a Christmas present for my boyfriend and I am sure that he will love it!

Gave this to my son who plays the drums! I thought he would enjoy something different sounding! Well this drum is it! It didn't come with any explanation or even the name of the drum in the package so I checked my receipt and he did some research on the internet to get some infomation on it. Not too much out there but he has enjoyed experimenting with it. A conversation piece thats for sure.
