Crafted of specially selected, kiln dried and environmentally friendly Siam Oak, the LP Tambora Drum features 11″ diameter natural rawhide skin heads. The LP Tambora is essential for performing authentic Merengue – the rhythm of the Dominican Republic. This instrument is traditionally played with the drum on the lap and hit with a beater on one end and a bare hand on the other. Black nylon strap, tuning wrench, LP Lug Lube and wooden beater included. This is a special order item.
