Description

This is a flat disc-like drum, about three feet in diameter. It is suspended from a large square wooden frame by three springs, two of which hang from each of the uppermost corners of the frame, whilst the third secures it at the bottom. It also has a very steep slope from the centre of its shell to its head which helps provide a rich, warm tone when it is struck.
