Meditative and Mesmerizing, Our Ocean Drum Makes Waves
This double-headed frame drum comes in 14- and 18-inch diameters and contains ball bearings sealed in the space between the two heads. The heads and bearings work together to create a sound that has to be heard to be appreciated. The 18 inch Ocean Drum has a louder volume .
By holding the drum horizontally and slowly allowing the bearings 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, the ocean drum is a versatile instrument.
Our Shaw Percussion ocean drums feature solid steam-bent shells, a goatskin head and a clear plastic head to view the bearings swirl around the drum, adding to its relaxing, meditative effect. Our ocean drums are made right here at our shop in Sutton West Ontario, Canada.
