This drum has something to say.
This Meinl African talking drum was carved into an hourglass shape from a solid piece of mahogany and decorated with a carved motif. The 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 Meinl drum is then squeezed to bend the pitch while the other hand employs an included curved striker.
