This is one of several Latin Percussion udu drums that came to us from a local percussionist's collection. They are generally in excellent condition; some may have very slight scuffs or blemishes.
This is the Mbwata model, which has a dual-chamber design. The flat chamber creates bright, sharp, wet tones, while the lower chamber has mellow, round, dry bass tones. Free shipping within the continental US!
Developed by master ceramicist Frank Giorgini, the clay construction of LP Udu® Drums is based upon centuries-old African traditions. Each LP Udu Drum offers individual tonal values. They can be played by hitting any part of the drum with the palm of the hand or the finger tips. The textured surfaces provide additional tonal variations by creating rubbing sounds.
