Pearl double headed Batas are based upon ancient African designs and feature naturally finished 100% Thai Oak shells for great tone. Chrome plated conga style tuning brackets with extra strength claws and traditional rims, provide excellent tuning features. These prized ceremonial drums offer a great, warm, traditional tone.
