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. The name "Udu" has been derived from the Nigerian Ibo language, meaning "pottery".

Each LP Udu Drum offers individual tonal values. 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 mics 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.

  • Tear drop shaped drums provide wet, liquidy sounds and easy playability
  • Each of the four drumís tones is evenly spaced

LP Claytone 3 January 21, 2014
Reviewer: Brandon from Garrison, ND United States  
I've been wanting an udu for some time and finally decided on this drum.  I used the online chat feature and videos at X8 to help me decide.  Great customer service and a great drum.  Love that udu bass sound.  I'll be ordering from X8 again for sure.

Reviewer: Fred Wilton from Murrieta, CA United States  
The Udu drum was exactly the one I wanted at the best price I could find and it arrived at my house sooner than expected.  Great job, X8.  I will definitely recommend you to others!

A great udu November 7, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Westford, MA United States  
I have 3 other LP udus (Mbwata, Utar and Udongo II), but this one may be my favorite.  The tone is beautifully resonant and it lends itself to a wide variety of playing techniques.  You can also get distinctly different pitches by striking different parts of the surface.  This is the model I'd suggest to someone looking to buy one (or a first) udu.
