      OVERVIEW

      Based upon century-old African traditions.

      The LP Udu Drum Mbwata produces rich and extreme textures between its two chambers. The lower rounded chamber produces mellow, round, dry bass tones, while the smaller, flat chamber creates bright, sharp, wet tones. Sounds created from the upper chamber are similar to the sounds of the Indian tabla or Middle Eastern doumbek.

      The Udu Mbwata's clay construction is based upon century-old African traditions. It is played with the palm of the hand and fingertips. The textured surfaces provide additional tonal variations when rubbed. The sound possibilities can be further expanded by using the unique microphone ports found in each chamber. Small mics can be mounted for amplification to capture the internal sounds. The Udu Drum Mbwata is generally played in a seated position with the drum on the player's lap. It can also be played on a tabletop or floor using the included straw ring stands.

        Comments about LP Udu Drum Mbwata:

        Instrument is great, I like the you can attach mics. The only down side is the shipping of the instrument. First one arrived broken. needs to be packed differently. 2nd time ask Musicians Friend to label it "Fragile", which they did and put an additional box around it.

        Comments about LP Udu Drum Mbwata:

        I searched all of the drum sites. Most will price match to the lowest competitor. However, not all have free shipping for orders over twenty-five (for now). When the numbers are pretty much the same, shipping (believe it or not) was the reason I went with Musician's Friend, AND keep coming back to purchase more. There's more I could say about how fantastic this Udu drum is. If you play hand drums, or have always wanted to beat an inanimate object, a desk, or your own head with your mouth open, you need an Udu! The LP Mbwata is an excellent choice.

        Awesome drum. I've had mine for years. Never had a problem with it. It's a blast to play.
