This African-derived drum is one of the most melodic percussion instruments.
This 18" x 8" Talking Drum features a professional-quality ACOUSTICON 316 shell and comes with ambassador-weight and diplomat-weight SUEDE drumheads.
Talking Drum masters from the West Africa area of Nigeria historically sent messages to others by striking the drum with a curved stick by modulating its pitch. Squeezing the drum or pulling its strings are two of the many techniques that are used to produce the Talking Drum's characteristic rhythms and melodies.
One of the drum's most innovative features is its modern counterhoop, which makes for quick and easy drumhead changing. It also comes with a carrying strap to suspend over shoulder, making for easier playing.
- 18" x 8" shell
- Ambassabdor and Diplomat SUEDE drumheads
- Shoulder strap
- Mallet sold separately
A durable modern version of the traditional African instrument.

Comments about Remo Talking Drum:
This is the best overall talking drum I've played, my roomate had a couple different cheap drums and the remo blew the others away. The only aspect better about the other brands were the mallets.
