One of a Kind Instruments
The unique thing about this percussion instrument is that the beads are inside the drum unlike a shakere where they are on the outside. There is a drum head on the bottom and a removable top so you can change the contents inside the drum as well.-

INTRODUCING-!!!!!!!! A New Creation-!!!!!!!-----Kendu " Series Drums
The "Kendu" drum is a derivative of the popular UDU drum using the main components; a clay vessel and sound portals. The kendu drum has a Nile sturgeon fish skin attached to one side of the drum and a mahogany wood shell with a fish skin head on the other. There is a 3" diameter hole in the bottom of the wood shell that accesses the ceramic shell through another 3" hole in the clay body as well. By doing this the kendu sound has a lower pitch because I've actually increased the size of the chamber. The drum heads act as resonators for the kendu.This makes it possible to get a multitude of other effects; sliding your hand over either sound portal while hitting either head will give a glissando and /or pitch change. Also, the fish skin attached to the wood shell has been extended beyond the shell in an arch pattern. You can flick your fingers over this to get a ratchet type sound, also, you could have bells attached to the extended head that would resonate when the kendu,or the drum heads are hit. There is a small hole in the bridge between the two drums where a lavalier microphone is inserted to amplify the sound as well as to add digital sound effects such as, digital delay and"Kendu", custom padded case with shoulder strap and 2 thumb rings thumb rings. $435.00.
