Lightweight and easy to handle, our Surf Ocean Drum features strong synthetic heads on both sides. The bottom head is opaque while the top head is transparent so you can see and better control the movement of the iridescent beads floating about loosely inside. As you tilt the drum back and forth, the beads slide freely from side to side, creating a highly rhythmic, rolling wave sound. Rotate the drum faster for a bigger, stronger crash and slower for a more soothing tones. An end cap allows you to adjust the inside fill, adding or reducing the amount of beads inside. The highly durable synthetic shell is splashed with colorful artwork and holds up to frequent play.
The Surf Ocean Drum isn't just for beach music, tropical tunes or Caribbean songs either. Let its breaking wave sound add a fun twist to whatever style of music you like to play. Measures 1"H x 14" Dia.

Drum had a couple of cosmetic issues,one on the rubbery edge and the other was a couple of scratch marks on the clear head,but in no way does this affect the playing. Drum is great at imitating the ocean wave sound,and has surprisingly good tone. I play it on edge while sitting in traditional frame drum style and I appreciate the versatility of it! Great for someone wanting to play frame drum without investing a ton of $. Also great for those just starting or wanting a take along drum to a drum circle.
While the drum was almost a bit too loud (I discovered it was more muted when I turned it upside down), I still very much appreciate its addition to my drum circle instrument inventory. It's a great value in savings to your wallet.
exceeded my expectations on what I thought I was getting. A very beautiful drum.
