Beautiful Large Talking  Drum
From Ghana

We are finishing off a great shipment of drums from West Africa, and they have been   incredible!     This is one of more unique select drums set aside for Auction.      This particular choice drum  is  called a "Talking Drum, Talker or Tama or Tana".   It is a drum held in one hand or under the arm where pressure on the strings changes the tension on the two heads causing a great variety in the tone.    It can be made to sound like many different drums, or voices.   It is a asset to any musical group.  This particular one is nearly double the size of most we have gotten,   has its heads  made of some goat skin.  It   measures 7  " wide (diameter of both drum heads) and 18" Tall.   

The drum is carved from one piece of wood (Teak or Dimba Mahogany ?)   and is rubbed and stained then fitted with the two goat skin heads, fastened with covered rings, and tied via a wound cord assembly that wraps all around the drum.   It is a very unique drum and produces many wonderful different sounds on demand.    Comes with a hand carved beater.     Retail $ 69.95 to $ 89.95    

 

 


Shipping is $9.40 anywhere in the Continental US.   Payment via your credit card via paypal.com or similar online  bank is preferred and definitely fastest!   Yes, we can take a money order if you will notify us and send it in the mail wihin 3 days of auction close.    All sales final.  

 If you are buying this as a gift, you will be sorely tempted to keep it for yourself.
