Don't let the name fool you. These new hand drums from Toca may be "Lightweights," but that only refers to poundage. When it comes to sonic performance, powerful projection, and genuine value, these drums are definitely in the heavyweight category.

The Lightweights Hand Drums feature a patented hybrid design that combines elements of a doumbek with those of a djembe. The sculpted shell is made of an ultra-light synthetic material that dramatically reduces the weight of the drum without sacrificing anything when it comes to tone, resonance, or durability. A rubber edge protects the bottom of the shell.

Each Lightweights Hand Drum is topped with a permanently attached pre-stretched synthetic head. This head provides great playing response and a wide frequency range while eliminating tuning hassles and concerns about the head losing tension. In combination with the ultra-light shell, this durable head helps each Lightweights Hand Drum to produce clean open tones, crisp slaps, and rich, deep bass tones.

The unprecedented portability and sound quality of the Lightweights Hand Drums make them excellent choices for drum facilitators and music teachers. Professional hand drummers will appreciate the Lightweights' potential as soloing instruments. And players of all kinds will appreciate the available hand-painted finishes. The Jamaican-inspired “Rasta” features a bright black/red/yellow/green striped motif. The fact that the finish covers both the shell and the head adds to the visual uniqueness of these innovative drums.

Available in 3 sizes:

  • 9" in diameter by 16" high
  • 10" in diameter by 19" high
  • 12" in diameter by 22" high

Excellent Service/Excellent Product September 20, 2011
Reviewer: Maura NiConnell from Decatur, GA United States  
Wow! I'm amazed because of the outstanding service and selection from X8 Drums! On August 18, 2011 I attempted to place an order for a 10" Toca Lightweights (Rasta) drum from the Atlanta, GA Guitar Center. The customer service guy at GC is a really nice guy and I feel bad for him, being stuck working at Guitar Center. Anyway, he took my money and placed the order only to find out a week later that the G.C. warehouse was completely out of the Toca Lightweight hand drums. G.C. sent me an email saying they were on backorder and to expect my drum the first week of September. Then, a week later they sent me another email saying the drum was back ordered until September 20 or later, they weren't sure! Mad as a hornet, I returned to G.C., got my money back and that night went and found X8 Drums. I took a chance and ordered my drum. And guess what? I got it a week later! No fuss, no misleading emails, no foolishness... I am impressed!
