OVERVIEW

Authentic tribal tones.

The Meinl African Talking Drum is carved into an hourglass shape from a solid piece of Mahogany wood, and decorated with a carved motif. Two hand-selected goatskin heads are tuned 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.

  • Carved from one solid piece of plantation grown Mahogany Wood
  • Nylon tuning strap
  • Ornamental carving
  • Hand-selected goatskin head
  • Comes with a curved wooden beater
  • Large - 16" x 8"
  • Medium - 12" x 7"

Nice Little Drum

Comments about Meinl African Talking Drum:

It's a nice little drum, but not the most durable. I remember shortly after I started playing mine I was going for a higher tone but not above a reasonable capacity for the drum and the wood cracked on one end and the head tore slightly. I didn't render it unusable but you would expect a little bit more durable construction.

      Comments about Meinl African Talking Drum:

      This was on sale so i got it to ad to my collection,
      I had to readjust the heads and the tension strings to get rid of the buzz,
      What can you expect from future made?
      Im happy though.
