At Drums for Schools we are committed to making instruments that are sustainable, and the ‘Dundun Set – Medium – bamboo’ is the first set in a growing range of eco-drums. The sound is superb and the drums are also lightweight, as well as great value.

These are suitable for long term school use at Primary level, and they are also available to purchase individually as they have lots of applications in EY and SEN settings.

The sizes vary a little as they are a smaller version of the full size sets that we provide;

  • Sangban: 40cm diameter by 50cm high (which is takes the place of the Dundun)
  • Kenkeni: 35cm diameter by 40cm high (Which is takes the place of the Sangban)
  • Mini Kenkeni: 30cm diameter by 35cm high (Which is takes the place of the Kenkeni)

The heads are extra-thick goatskin and each set comes complete with three double-ended beaters (wood and padded) to give an even wider range of sounds.

N.B. For SEN settings: Please put a note with your order to indicate that it is needed for an SEN setting, so that we know to include the relevant materials.

Product Information

What's included

There are two primary playing styles for Dunduns. The traditional ‘rural’ style has each player using a single drum resting on its side, either on the floor, on a stand, or on a strap carried by the player. In each instance the drum is horizontal with both drum skins available for use for left or right handed players. The drum is struck with the beater in one hand, and usually the opposite hand is used to play a Bell which is secured to the top of the Dundun. Performances of this nature are normally communal and in a large circle.

The other technique is known as ‘ballet’ style and comes from the touring National Ballet groups. One drummer may be responsible for all three Dundun parts, so the three drums are often placed upright, usually lifted from the ground with stands of some variety. This enables one player to move between all three drums easily with a beater in beach hand. More complex rhythms and improvisation is possible with this arrangement. A Bell is not usually played by the same person in this set up. Performances of this nature are more in line with Western tradition and are on stage, or at the end of one room.
