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!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality
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.
I bought this udu drum for my daughter's boyfriend who is into unique instruments. He is a drummer and I thought he would enjoy this drum. I was right - he seems to be very happy with and already has enjoyed playing it.
