This shaman drum is magnificent. It sounds beautiful indeed and I love to play it very close as I can feel the vibrations in my heart. When I showed it to one of my groups for the first time people were really interested to play something of that size but took great delight to find their beat. A very valuable addition to my collection that will please many over the coming years. The carry bag is wonderful and so eye catching as many other such bags are dark in colour. A very happy customer!
