Description: There are two holes in each Claytone, one on the side and one at the top. Players bounce and slap their hands over the holes, and on the edge of the holes. (Bouncing your palm on top of the holes produces a mellow, wet, liquid-like, sounds.) Players also create various percussive sounds by slapping, tapping, knocking, rubbing, scratching the shell.
The larger the size the Claytone Udu, the deeper the bass. Thus, the C4 udu has the warmest and deepest bass. The four tear drop shaped Claytones are sized proportionately, so they harmonize with each other and sound great in sets.
Video: Listen with headphones to hear the bass and all the tones more clearly
Pic above: Microphone hole:
Features: LP Udus have a small hole strategically positioned for a small microphone. A small piece of clay, which players push into the hole where the mic wire is entering/exiting keeps the mic firmly in position.
Attaching a mic increases the tonal possibilities and is great for live performances and recording sessions. The Udu displays more volume and presence with a mic.
