If you like percussion, then you're certainly no stranger to hand drums. From congas to djembes to bongos, they're an exciting way to create rhythms bursting with character and energy. But not every kind of hand drum is on the list of usual suspects that we're all familiar with. If you're interested in seeing the sort of instruments you may not have heard of before, this selection of Meinl unique hand drums is the place to find it. No one does diversity like Meinl, and if you need some proof to back up that statement, you're on the right page.
No matter what style of music you play, there are hand drums here to complement it. The Meinl Electric Kalimba, for instance, makes a really distinctive sound that's great for individualizing an intro or refrain, and it even has a pickup and pre-amp so you can connect it to your stage sound system. Searching for something more intense? Check out the Meinl African Talking Drum: this instrument looks kind of like a djembe, but it's designed so that you can sling it under your arm and squeeze it while you play to tighten the strings and adjust the pitch on the fly. The result is an incredible playing experience and sound.
Are you more of a simple hoop drum fan? No problem: there are all kinds of those here, each with its own one-of-a-kind tone. Want a deep and booming Celtic beat? Take a look at the Meinl Irish Bodhran with Goat Skin Head. Prefer a lighter sound? The Meinl Artisan Edition Tar is up to the challenge. These two drums have natural skin heads, but you can also go synthetic with instruments like the Meinl True Feel Synthetic Head Hand Drum. The choice is up to you.
That's what everything in this section is about, really: choice. The variety of Meinl unique hand drums is truly incredible, so it's worth taking the time to look at all the instruments they have to offer. Chances are pretty high that you'll soon find a special hand drum you just can't wait to try out.
