8Dio Solo Frame Drum represents one of the most widespread and versatile families of drums – with a history crossing through ancient Middle East, India, Rome and through a variety of Islamic cultures. The Frame Drum defined by the simple characteristic that the width of the drumhead is greater then its depth, and is known to come in thousands of variations. It is known for its distinct sustained sound and its multi-resonant qualities.
The Frame Drum is traditionally tuned with straps or lugs, while others are permanently set at a fixed pitch. Many also incorporate beads, rattles, cymbals, jingles, rings, bells, snares or other accessories, to augment the primary sound and add specialized auxiliary articulations. Some are played with hands, while others use thin sticks, thick bones, soft mallets, combs, brushes and other specialized tools to produce a huge range of unique musical tones and effects. Some members of the Frame Drum family may even lack a striking head and rely entirely on rattles or other elements to produce their sound.
The 8Dio “Solo Frame Drums” library contains two styles of Irish Bodhrán, one African Tar drum and a North American tribal buffalo hide shamanic drum. Each was captured in a close dry studio setting, covering both traditional and expanded playing styles and articulations. The first Bodhrán is nearly 3-feet wide, with a massive low end much like a concert bass drum. The second is a deep-shelled medium sized drum with powerful, clear tonality. The smallest, a tar drum, has a crisp, sharp ring. The Buffalo drum has a flat, tight sound with a massive subsonic bass blast.
