Man, you could open a shop with all the bits and pieces you have there. Nice collection.

This is my Bodhran with tippers, and two pairs of bones. When I first got my Bodhran I thought "this should be easy to play. I mean, it's a drum. I'm a drummer." WRONG! What a learning curve these instruments have been, and so much fun to play once you get the basic hang of them, especially a few pints of Guinness!
If you're not familiar with how the Bodhran and bones are played/sound, have a look on youtube. There are some brilliant players there.

Hello

Here are some of my Drumskull African drums:

Very Back: Guinea Extra Large Dununba Melina Wood
Back: Guinea Congas - Quinto, Conga Hare Wood (Tumba is out of picture)
Middle: Guinea Djembe Djalla Wood, Guinea Djembe Lenke Wood
Front: Guinea Djembe Lenke Wood, Guinea Bugarabu Hare Wood

If you are looking for professional quality African drums, check out Drumskull; they are pricy but they are the very best.

Hello

Here are some of my frame drums I have picked up during my travels:

Tar and bendir frame drums from Kuwait and Morocco
Mazhar from Egypt
Kanjira from India
Cooperman/Velez Tar, Bendir and Mediterrasian Tambourine from USA
Daf from Bahrain

I believe that kit drummers benefit and develop when they play other types of drums (e.g. hand drums and frame drums for example). Frame drums are nice and relatively quiet instruments to play.

For an excellent example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTaeh...eature=related

I have some bones and have not even come close to mastering the technique! The great bones players make it look so easy.

I recently bought a Djembe:



It's a relatively cheap one. But it sounds good! It has a very nice focused bass sound. Though there is a flaw in the bearing edge, I'll get that looked after if I need to replace the head some day. the tone is about a semitone higher near the dent in the bearing edge and across from it.

Here is a pic of my dumbek. She is a remo. A dumbek is pretty much the same as a djembe but just smaller. I got her for either my 10th or 11th bday. Umm... the pic is to big so go to my album to view my dumbek.

I just took everything out of the "drum room" cleaned and painted. I painted a Gretsch Harlequin Sun Amber Gloss finish (from Gretsch's New For 2009 catalog) design on one wall. I took the catalog into HomeDepot building supply and they scanned it and mixed me up some paint. I still have some work to do in there - shelves and mouldings. So I just have some of my Valje drums and a Toad Conga in there for now. They sound soooo good in that room right now! I may put my RotoToms and Metalephone in there as well.

Here's the room as of today...........sorry about the practice pad on the SuperTumba. Actually I've been playing (not with the sticks) the congas and leaving the pad on there and it makes a huge bass tone!

The Gretsch drum is my latest addition - eBay last month (I've posted elseware here). It's a 1949 (my birthyear) Renown Mahogany Parade drum. I cleaned it up - I didn't restore because did not want to mess with the badge.

Here is my Indian Kanjira with a monitor lizzard skin. It is a pretty old Kanjira but in excellent condition (I would not have bought it if it was new since the monitor lizzard is an endangered species). The skin is exceptionally thin and when wet, it becomes very pliable so that you can "bend" the pitch the way a guitarist bends his strings.

Where/how did you get a hold of this kanjira? I'd love to get one but my traditional indian connections don't go beyond Tablas and dholaks.

Here's my cajon! I totally love this instrument because it emulates the kick and snare sounds so well. I play in an acoustic cover band on the weekends, and this is my main instrument.

I know this is an old thread, but it's still on here, so here it goes.

Here a few of the "other" percussion instruments I have accumulataed over the years.

This is four sets of Water Buffalo bells. The hardest part of acquiring them was to get the water buffalos to hold still so I could get them off :-).

This is an accumulation of some of my non drum kit percussion ranging from dumbek (far left) to congas, bongos, concert toms, timbalis, various wood blocks, etc. I've used most of them in pit orchestra work (got tired of trying to borrow them). The concert toms are quite old and the next to largest is actually a 9-1/2". It needed a new head and I had to have one custom made by Remo. No one believed that this was the actual size untill I took it to find a head. I acquired these and all of the Ludwig drums from my retired college band director before he passed away.

One of the fun things about these is that none of the stands come out of my three drum sets so they don't interfere with the set up of any of them.

I've always heard them called Prayer drums. I picked one up at the Japanese pavillion at Epcot a few years ago. It's definately a favorite of mine.

That's it so far. Quite evious of all the conga, bongo and tibales stuff I see. Thankfully, I do have access to congas to practice on, though.

Some Toca Bongo's. They're entry level and don't have the best sound, but they get the job done.



And my Remo 25x14 Djembe in a Nickel Silver Finish. This thing sounds awesome, the bass notes are huge, and they project very well, and the open notes and slaps, are clean and loud, with a wonderful tone.

Some of my collection of noise machinery, far from all of it!

Lots of cowbells, I've always been a fan of cowbells...the ago-ago looking bell is from Africa and you're only supposed to play the small bell, the large bell on it is only for battle!

I also have a thing for tambourines and maracas...and microphones, and snares, and and and...
