Shaw Percussion 12 Inch Tabacco Burst Ashiko Drum
The ashiko drum has a tapered cone shape and is played with your bare hands, producing a crisp, dry slap, similar to a conga, and a round open bass sound. Our ashikos come in both 10” and 12” diameters with a 24” height making them easily playable while seated. Shaw Percussion ashikos are fitted with a thick, strong water buffalo hide that provides both the durability and the distinct tone that differentiates it from other hand percussion. We use high quality, low-stretch Kevlar rope specially designed for our hand drums to not only look attractive but keep your drum in tune. Also available are our new wood ashiko stands to make playing your ashikos easier then ever.
