The surprisingly warm and sonorous bass sounds make the Water Drum a fascinating instrument with an amazing effect. The larger bowl of a pair is filled with water, the smaller one is laid on the water upside down. Now you can drum on it whether it be with hands or soft strikers. If you have suitable bowls for the water (plastic basins for instance) you can use all four pumpkin bowls for drumming. The sounds of the Water Drum can even be tuned slightly if you change the water level inside the water bowl. Different sizes of bowls offer a variety of sound effects.
