UDU

(oo-doo)

A truly gigantic, room-shaking sub-bass tone is produced from this traditional Igbo pot drum, which is played with a soft sponge paddle (included).

 

It can produce an open note, a half note and a muted note.

The smaller sizes also have a side hole(optional).

 

Because the body is metal and not the original clay construction, you can also strike the body with any hard object to produce a range of different metallic sounds.

 

The weight of largest size is only approx 5kg!
