These tongue drums are a modern take on the African slit drum used originally for long distance communication. The design is beautiful, portable and a lot of fun to play either solo or as part of a drum circle or percussion ensemble.
This drum is made with a solid African padauk wood playing surface set into a solid poplar cabinet. It offers a clean, sustained tone and good note separation. In addition to the padauk top, there are beautiful padauk accent lines inlayed into the poplar sides.
It comes with 2 rubber mallets.
This drum measures 15" x 5.5" x 7"
This is a beautiful gift for the musician or collector in your life! It is truly a beautiful drum that sounds as good as it looks!
