I recently made a's a drum that originated in Peru sometime back and apparently is big in Flamenco music. I became interested in it after hearing it played at my brother in law's outdoor wedding in July. It sounded like a bass and snare from a regular drum kit, and I went up afterwards to ask how it was mic'd--and it wasn' I was impressed with the good sound. They showed me the guitar strings inside that give it the snare sound, and I was hooked...something I could make in Africa!

I've tried to make a video in case you are interested. Unfortunately Oreo wanted attention at the time, but I think you get the idea...
