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.

  • Lowest pitch of all the Udus
  • Bell chamber creates very bright, wet sounds, while the shell can create "cowbell" type sounds
  • Main body’s flat surface makes this an ideal drum for conga and bongo players

this instrument has a terrific range and it is very ergonomic making it an easy percussive instrument to jump right into. The melodic capabilities are impressive.
