This is a really nice sized drum. Not too big, and certainly not too small. At only 15 1/2 pounds, you can carry it around easily. This is a little heavier than my drums usually are. I wanted this drum to be capable of the intensely sharp slaps of the Guinea style drums, so I left an extra thickness of wood in the critical places. This whole drum is silky smooth and has gentle ripples and a flowing shape. It's made from a single piece of Black Walnut wood with its naturally rich chocolaty color. The bass note is massive and hangs on a long time. A real boooom. The high tones and pops are powerful, crisp and commanding. When tuned tighter it positively barks.  This drum goes the full scale, from soft sweet song tones when tuned down, to sharp biting barks when cranked tighter. The bass remains full and resonant through the whole range.
