Hohner Kids Musical Toys MP483 Ocean Drum

About the Product

Hohner is one of the most top ranked manufacturers of musical instruments in the world. It produces a plethora of instruments including the lesser played ones like harmonica, accordion, melodic and ukulele.

The ocean drum is a relatively infrequently played percussion instrument which makes soothing sounds like the ocean. It is played in a unique manner. You have to hold it by the rim and tilt it by moving your wrist. The metal beads glide over the bottom head and this sound is equivocal to waves hitting the shore. Different sounds and different tones can be made by changing the speed of tilting. Sudden start and stop makes crashing sounds.
