LP Udu® drums possess distinct tonal qualities which range from subtle bass to soothing tabla-like tones. The LP Udu® Drum Mbwata is a vertical, dual chambered 18″ long drum. The lower 12″ rounded chamber produces smooth, deep bass with dry tones. The smaller, flat 8″ chamber creates sharp, “wet” sounds with bright tones. Straw ring stand is included for table top or floor playing.
