Meditative and Mesmerizing, Our 18 Inch Ocean Drum Makes Waves
This double-headed Ocean Drum is 18 inches in diameter and contains stainless steel shot sealed in the space between clear plastic and a dyed goatskin head. The heads and steel shot work together to create a sound that has to be heard to be appreciated. The 18-inch Ocean Drum has a louder volume and slightly deeper bass tones than the 14-inch version. By holding the drum horizontally and slowly, allowing the shot to roll around inside the drum, you can create the meditative and soothing sounds of ocean waves. By increasing the intensity of the movement, you can evoke different moods of the ocean and simulate the crashing surf.
Used for meditation, story-telling, sound therapy and sound effect creation, it can also be played like a frame drum to create even more unique sounds.
Our Shaw Percussion ocean drums feature a solid steam-bent shell, decorative trim, a goatskin and a clear plastic head. The clear drum head lets you view the shot swirl around the drum, adding to its relaxing, meditative effect. We make our ocean drums right here at our shop in Sutton West, Ontario, Canada.
Please note our Ocean Drums are individually handcrafted. Each drum will have a unique colour pattern based on the natural goat-skin head and will be similar but not identical to the images shown.
