 Product Description

Bolt tuned synthetic head. Includes two beaters, of rattan or split bamboo, and a nylon adjustable shoulder strap. Actual weight, approximately 5.75 pounds (2.5 Kg).

The kettledrum apparently originated in the Middle East, but its age is not known with certainty. It is speculated that its precursors were primitive pot drums formed by holding or fastening a skin over a clay pot. The early flat-bottomed varieties developed into the now typical egg-shaped and hemispherical types; and metal, as well as clay, shells were used.

During the 17th and 18th centuries kettledrumming developed into an elaborate and ostentatious ceremonial art that used complicated drum patterns based on the multiple tonguing technique of trumpeters. Kettledrums entered the orchestra in the mid-17th century; orchestral kettledrums are commonly called timpani.
