LP Udu Mbwata LP1400-MB

List price: $179.99

Sale price: $149 (includes shipping in continental U.S.)

 

UDU Photo: The small mic hole is on the side of the drum.  Udus are not loud instruments.  They are mellow and relatively soft.  For performances a condenser mic can be put into the mic hole on the side of the drum.  A udu with a live mic allows the mellow tones to be  projected.  It sounds awesome!

UDU DRUM Photo: The two main playing holes can be seen, one at the top and one on the side of the drum.

UDU DRUM MBWATA Photo: The sitting ring allows you to tilt the drum, for ease of playing.

Large, Round Chamber: Produces mellow, whole, dry, bass tones

Small, Flat Chamber: Creates bright, sharp, wet tones; sounds are similar to those of the Indian tabla or Middle Eastern darbuka

Includes: Includes: Straw Sitting Ring (allows you play comfortably on a table top or floor)

Features: Microphone ports in each chamber - sounds amazing with mic amplification! Mics will increase the tonal possibilities and are great for live performances and recording sessions.

LP Mbwata was developed by Frank Giorgini and percussionist Jamey Haddad.  

Playing Technique: The Mbwata udu can be played on the two holes of the drum or on the shell itself.  When playing on the holes simply provide the rhythm and the mbwata will provide the mellow tones.  In addition to playing the holes, slapping the clay shell will give a strong percussive effect.  It will produce an obvious slap sound as well as resonating pinging sounds.  

The word "Udu" comes from the Nigerian Ibo language and means "pottery".  The simple, but solid clay construction is based upon centuries-old African traditions.  Udus reveal the close relationship between pottery & musical instruments.
