Aloha,

OK, I am in process of learning how to play a vertical split/slit drum... seems as though they just don't carry these things at the local Target. I know they have been brought up before but please show me what you have and what you think needs to go into making a great one (keeping in mind this will be getting played and not just looked at) Also who in the TC Ohana makes them... and what it's going to cost me!

I know I have seen references to G-man's work and he has told me of JohnnyP... if anyone else has some suggestions and insight it would be appreciated. As always pictures are great!

Mahalo!

Hi guys, thanks for the replies so far. The 'typical' size I see being used within my halau is aproximately 3 feet long by 6-8 inches in diameter. Definitely something one could easily stick in a trunk, but not so small the sound is weak. I don't think I need anything more than a large tootsie roll shape with the slit cut out, and then I can carve some decor on it myself... then again if any of you have something sitting around you want to get rid of tell me!

Mahalo!

Sperry Topsiders with no socks, every day for a month. Smells like death. I can't make a split drum, either but I may like to have one or learn to make them.

There's way too much P in this thread.

It's slit not split.

That is a sweet "slit" drum... I meant slit and not split, but I work at a startup and my brain is continually overwhelmed....

So what would a little beauty like that go for if I may ask?

One like that would be less than $500.

You would want it standing Vertical? decorations galore, what are you into for tiki/decorations?

Hey Benz, I will send you a pm to see if we can work something out... not for decoration though this one will be a user! I am learning to drum as part of a Hula Halau.

I wanted to say to everyone that Benz and I have agreed to the project and he will be making the slit drum for me! I would be thrilled to watch some pics of the work in progress whenever you can Benzart.

Mahalo!
