In conjunction with noted educator and percussionist, Kalani, Toca has released its new "Flex Drum,"ë a stackable, easy-to-transport community drum, ideal for any interactive drumming event.
The patented Kalani Flex Drum is made entirely of lightweight PVC material and has a removable PVC head, allowing the drum to be stacked with additional flex drums.
"One of the biggest challenges for people who organize drums circles is transporting multiple drums to the event," said Kalani. "Shipping five or six traditional hand drums can be cumbersome and costly. Toca's new Flex Drums weigh less than six pounds each and can be stacked together and shipped or transported anywhere, economically and easily."
The Flex Drum is 23-inches tall and its pre-tuned 11-inch head can be removed and used as a frame drum. The body of the drum can also be used to store other small items, such as shakers or tambourines when traveling to and from gigs. A convenient, adjustable shoulder strap is included, allowing the drum to be played while standing.
