X8 Talking Drum
Watch Video Demonstration of the 7" x 13.25" Talking Drum
The X8 African Talking Drums are carved into an hourglass shape from a solid piece of Mahogany wood, finished in a natural lightwood matte color. Two hand-selected goatskin heads are spanned with high-quality nylon rope. Traditionally, the talking drum is played beneath one arm, and held against the ribcage. The drum is then squeezed to "bend" the pitch while the other hand employs a curved striker.
