There are dozens of individual features, but here are a few highlights:. The best sounds and features are useless if you can't find and use them quickly when inspiration strikes. The djembe , a large goblet-shaped drum, is thought to have originated among the Mandinka people of West Africa. The loud volume of the djembe allows it to cut through loud mixes, and it is also easy to haul around. Traditional djembes are generally carved of wood and are fitted with a goatskin head, while modern djembes may use synthetic materials for both the body and head.

The synthetic head and tuning system means you can deal with any weather or musical setting while enjoying its robust and broad sound palette. The djun djun , sometimes called the dunun or doundoun, is a non-specific name for a large group of West African rope-tuned drums. They come in a range of sizes, and are commonly played alongside the djembe. They have a skin or synthetic head at both ends, and are played with a stick, mallet, or even a bell. The drum is played with one hand and a special curved stick, and is said to "talk" in the hands of a skilled player.

The Overseas Connection Ghana Talking Drum has authentic skin drum heads and rope binding that alters the pitch when squeezed. The thumb piano , often called the "mbira" or "kalimba", is over years old. It is a melodic instrument that uses "keys" made of flattened nails or other metal with a gourd or carved wooden body. Some have small metal resonators around the individual keys to create buzzing overtones.

Most can be tuned by adjusting the portion of the key that extends under a bridge-like wood or metal bar. Most mbiras are tuned in pentatonic scales. The Meinl Medium Kalimba is designed so the chrome-plated steel keys can be easily tuned, and a large hole in the front of the sound chamber helps project its sound.

The Udu is a clay pot-shaped instrument native to Nigeria with a hole in the side. A variation on this drum called the Ibo is made with a variety of different materials. The slit drum , also known as a log or tongue drum, is a wooden drum with cut-out surfaces that produce different tones when struck with mallets. These drums have a warm, resonant sound with great projection.

The tongues or slits are cut so that the drum produces a pleasing scale. The Timber Drum Company Slit Drum generates mellow and warm tones thanks to its beautiful hardwood construction combined with the included soft mallets. This bell is essential to West African Ewe drumming and helps define the central beat in the same way claves provide the pulse in Afro-Cuban rhythms. The Overseas Connection Ghana Double Gonkogwe Bell produces two bright tones that help anchor the pulse in polyrhthmic drum circles.

The Cuica has African origins, where it was claimed to be effective as a call for attracting male lions.

This higher-pitched drum is used today in Brazilian samba music and Carnaval parades. Its shell may be made of wood, metal, or synthetic material, and has a single skin head. A thin bamboo rod is attached perpendicularly to the head on the inside of the drum. It is played by rubbing the stick with moistened fingers or a cloth held with one hand while applying pressure to the drum head with the other to alter pitches.

The combination of a brass shell with goatskin head and a modern tuning system allows the LP Brass Cuica to produce a range of squealing, roaring sounds that just might draw a lion out of the bush! Cuban music is a mix of Spanish and African influences, and the elemental rhythms of those cultures are expressed in the many drums used in this genre. Congas are probably the best-known Latin hand drums.

Of Afro-Cuban origin, they were originally constructed using wood staves, and were outfitted with calfskin heads. Today congas may use shells made of either wood or fiberglass, with either skin or synthetic heads. If you play with a heavily amplified band and need a lot of volume, you should consider congas made with synthetic or fiberglass shells for their louder volume and greater projection.

Congas made with wood shells have a slightly mellower, rounder tone. Some sets also feature yet a smaller conga tuned to a very high pitch, called a super quinto or requinto. Also from Cuba come the bongos , a pair of small hand drums traditionally played while seated and held between the legs. Bongos are very popular and are used both as a lead instrument and for solo performances. The wallet-friendly Meinl Free Ride Bongos have an excellent tuning and head-mounting system that allows them to be tuned very high for great tonal definition in group settings.

Watch the Free Ride Bongos in action. Timbales have their origins in the iron vessels used to ship sugar cane juice. Modern timbales are usually made from steel or brass, and their intense cutting tone provides an ideal solo voice for Latin, rock, and fusion styles. Steady accompaniment patterns are often played on the side of the metal shell, or cascara, with the free hand providing accents on the drum heads.

Traditionally a wood block and a cowbell or two are mounted on the timbale stand for additional accents. The very affordable LP Aspire Timbale Set has bright-sounding shells and comes with a high-pitched Jam Block for exciting accents and effects. The cajon is a wood percussion box that is believed to have its origins in Peru, where African slaves substituted wooden shipping crates for the native drums they had played in their homeland. The cajon also developed in Cuba, where fish crates and dresser drawers were used as percussion instruments.

In Spain the cajon is used to accompany flamenco, pop, and fusion music. The cajon is played by sitting on it and striking the front surface.

The back has a hole cut in it for resonance, and the front striking surface is loosened around the edges to permit slap tones when played near the edge. One of our most popular percussion instruments, the beautifully finished Meinl Siam Oak String Cajon has a great range of sounds including a unique sizzle effect for dazzling solos. The Bata is a double-headed hourglass-shaped drum, with one end larger than the other.

The doumbek also variously spelled and called the dombek, dumbak, darbuka, derbeki, tablah, or tombek is the most popular Middle Eastern drum.

How To Play Drums - Your Very First Drum Lesson

Characteristically played in a horizontal position across the lap with the hands and fingers, this goblet-shaped drum produces a wide dynamic range of tones. The doumbek comes in an astonishing range of shapes and styles. Egyptian cast-metal doumbeks usually have tunable Mylar heads. They are capable of higher volumes that are audible in loud mixes, with rounded edges on the drumheads that let you play loudly with comfort.

Turkish doumbeks are usually made of thinner metal with tuneable heads. Turkish doumbeks have a sharply-defined rim that gives it a resonant, metallic sound. Some Turkish doumbeks have cymbals or jingles inside for added flavor. The Toca Freestyle Doumbek has a comfortable curved rim, beautifully decorated shell, and produces fat bass notes from the center of the head and sharp trebles from the edge. Same as when I jam every month with these weird jazz dudes who played with Miles Davis or Mahavishnu Orchestra.
