Udu Drum Mbwata by Latin Percussion

Product overview

  • LP Udu Drums possess distinct tonal qualities which range from subtle bass tones to soothing tabla-like tones. Their clay construction is based upon centuries-old African traditions.
  • They can be played by hitting any part of the drum with the palm of the hand or the finger tips. The textured surfaces provide additional tonal variations by creating rubbing sounds.
  • The sound possibilities can be further expanded using the unique microphone ports found in each chamber. Small mikes can be mounted for amplification and to capture the wondrous internal sounds.
  • LP Udu Drums are generally played in a seated position with the drum on the player's lap. They can also be played on a table top or floor using the included straw ring stands.
  • The LP Udu Drum Mbwata is a vertical, dual chambered, 18ins long drum. The lower 12ins rounded chamber produces smooth, deep bass with dry tones. The smaller, flat 8ins chamber creates sharp, wet sounds with bright tones.
  • The top hole in the upper chamber and the side hole in the lower chamber, as well as the textured surface, combine to add many different sounds to this drum.
