Frame Drums are among the earliest drums in recorded history. By definition, a frame drum is simply a drum thats drumhead width is greater than its depth. Frame drums are true world-percussion instruments, and traverse musical genres and cultural borders. Easy to play, these warm-toned instruments can be held with one hand and played with a soft mallet or straddled between the knees like a bongo drum. Frame drums are super-portable, and are excellent for many applications - including DCP community drum circle nights!
