Overview

The clay construction of LP Udu Drums is based upon centuries-old African traditions. The name "Udu" has been derived from the Nigerian Ibo language, meaning "pottery". Each LP Udu Drum offers individual tonal values. They can be played by hitting any part of the drum with the palm of the hand or the finger tips. The textured surfaces provide additional tonal variations by creating rubbing sounds.

  • Rich and extreme textures between chambers
  • Lower rounded chamber produces mellow,round, dry bass tones; smaller, flat chamber creates bright, sharp, wet tones
  • Sounds created from the upper chamber are similar to those sounds of the Indian tabla or Middle Eastern dumbek
