LP Udu® Drums possess distinct tonal qualities which range from subtle bass tones to soothing tabla-like tones. Their clay construction 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. The sound possibilities can be further expanded using the unique microphone ports found in each chamber. Small mics can be mounted for amplification and to capture the wondrous internal sounds. LP Udu® Drums are generally played in a seated position with the drum on the player's lap. They can also be played on a table top or floor using the included straw ring stands.

The LP Udu Drum Udongo II is a major break-thru in design. The instrument is well balanced to be played either in the lap over one leg, or set on a flat surface on the provided soft kraft thread pillow rings. Two provided small holes allow use of electric pickups. The most amazing thing is the extra care that Chicago Music Exchange provides with super packing for shipping. I used the inner packing in a large plastic tote to safely store or transport when not in use.
