This simple percussion instrument creates an amazingly realistic sound.
Known both as the wave drum or ocean drum this item of hand percussion really does create a realistic sound of the seaside.
The instrument has a solid wood rim finished in bright red. Clear rough plastic is then stretched across both sides encasing a number of ball bearings.
When the drum is moved from side to side the ball bearings moving across the plastic and colliding with each other mimics the sound of the crashing waves very well indeed.
A perfect addition to any classroom set of hand percussion but also great on its own to re-create those seaside sounds.
