Ruby Geometric Ashiko: 20" x 10"

$129.00

Product Description

These drums are made of one-piece construction Mahogany, and measure anywhere between 19 – 20 inches tall, with an overall diameter of approximately 11 inches (including ring/rope hardware and overlapping fur), and playing surface diameters of approximately 9 – 9.5 inches. These drums are roped tight with 4mm non-stretch internally braided alpine rope. Each drum comes equipped with a braided handle at the neck of the drum, which can be untied/unraveled and used as tuning rope should the need for Mali Weave tuning arise. Goat skin from the back of the goat is used – the thickest portion of the overall skin. Many skins have a beautiful mottled appearance, and a subtle line down the middle of the skin indicating where the goats back bone was once situated. Fur is left at the perimeter of the head, which protects the tops of rope runners from wear and fray, provides padding to ensure comfort play so you aren’t beating your hands on the rings, and provides a primal aesthetic value to the drum. Fur color will vary from drum to drum.

  1. Kool Drum

    I received my Ashiko drum in a well packed and protected box. The fit and finish is very nice. The drum has a nice full sound considering the small diameter of the head. The fur is a good idea to protect your fingers when striking near the rim/edge. The integrated handle ia also a nice feature.
