"Can you play it like a drum or is it predominately used for the movement of beads inside ocean sound ? Th asks Can you,play it like a drum or is it primarily used for,the ocean sound with the beads inside? Thanks ð"
Nothing fancy here. At first I was slightly disappointed as I held the drum flat and slightly tilted from side to side, then I held the drum flat and slowly tilted in a circular clockwise motion. Very nice. Calming and meditative. I like it!...

This item was attractive. The problem for me were the beads that were used inside. They aren't smooth, metal pellets that I have seen in other, similar items. They were oddly shaped plastic beads that made the worst racket - I can't stress this enough. You can remove them and replace them. It would be better if the manufacturer would change the materials and make the sound more soothing. It's making me tense just thinking about the noise this made when I tried to get used to it.Read More

Questions & Answers
It's made to use with the beads rotating in a circular fashion- flat and gently roll to make the beads follow the swirl- sounds like the ocean waves and is very healing for the emotional body. Breathe deeply and go within while playing....powerful! Doesn't work well as a regular drum, but you can try!
