The Meinl African Talking Drums are carved into an hourglass shape from a solid piece of Mahogany wood, and decorated with a carved motif. 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.

    Drum newbie. This was a gift for my wife. She loves it. Never heard of a talking drum before this, but it's pretty cool. Happy with x8 order and shipping process.

    Beautiful Drum

    I have been wanting to purchase a drum for quite some time but never really found the one that "spoke" to me. I happened to come across X8 Drums website and found THE most awesome and beautiful African Talking Drum. The drum is of high quality and is exactly how it was described. I used it in a drumming circle and was so pleased! I also received many compliments as the drum is very unique. Your customer service is exceptional as I could track the shipment from beginning to delivery. Not to mention very fast delivery. Thank You So much x8Drums!
