Meinl African Talking Drum with Mahogany Wood Shell and Wooden Beater
The new Meinl African Talking Drums are carved into an hourglass shape from a solid piece of Mahogany wood and decorated with a carved motif. Two hand-selected goatskin heads are spanned with high-quality nylon rope. Traditionally, the talking drum is played beneath one arm, and held against the ribcage. The drum is then squeezed to "bend"; the pitch while the other hand employs a curved striker.
Features: Carved from one solid piece of plantation grown Mahogany Wood, nylon tuning strap, ornamental carvings, goat heads 7" (w) x 12" (h)
