        Awesome drum, very versatile... can be played with sticks, hands, or brushes Hard to compete with other hand drums without using a microphone or sticks to increase volume... Other than that it was a good buy

          Comments about Meinl Sea Drum:

          Bear with me as I'm not a drummer, this was more for my brother to play for me. I saw a YouTube video on this drum and was blown away by the sounds you can make with it. If played correctly, you essentially have a snare and a tom drum in one, using your thigh to shake and get the snare sound on the downbeat (or what have you). Great for some studio recording and simple jams. Not sure I'd bring it camping, I'm worried I could bust the back of it (as with any similar drum).

          Now, for the actual "sea" effect, e.g. gently turn it so the beads slowly move to the other side. This just about anyone can do, but I wouldn't buy this just for this purpose alone. I will say, however, when I have some ladies over (or anyone really) they go crazy over it. If you lay down, look up at the drum as you do the sea effect, you get a bit of a visual effect as well. Pretty cool!

          2 drums in one

              Comments about Meinl Sea Drum:

              This drum is like getting 2 for the price of one!And then there is the added bonus of the inner beads which actually makes it more like 3 drums.Each side of this drum has its own distinct sound and a whole other sound is achieved with the addition of the beads which can also be changed by the amount of beads added.The only drawback I find is holding it.It must be balanced on the knee and a simple cloth or leather strip to place your hand through to hold it it place would be perfect.I will probably add one myself.I own about 10 hand drums and this one is fast becoming my favorite.
