Udus are played by by hitting any part of the drum
A good udu makes musicals sounds over it's entire body
The palm of the hand is the main striking tool for playing the Udu holes; the palm & finger tips are commonly used to play the body.
The Udu is sometimes rubbed and scratched by players.
Rubbing & straching produces more earthy tones, tecutures & variations.
Convenient & well designed microphone ports are in each udu
Small mics can be mounted for amplification and to capture the wondrous internal sounds.Each LP udu is amazing with a mic!!!
PLUS, the LP udu also lends itself perfectly to applying creative, electronic tonal effects
For such a simple instrument there is an enormous amount creative expression that can be found with an udu!
Each of the four drum sizes tones is evenly spaced & harmonious with each other
An udu can be played comfortably while sitting on the floor or in a chair.
When sitting on the floor players typically sit the udu in a straw ring stand, which helps to secure & balance the drum while playing
When sitting in a chair players hold the drum on their lap.
Tip: Keep a rounded arm position playing
