This hand painted, hand made 'Thunder Drum' from Indonesia has to be heard to be believed! It's a quite simple construction of heavy duty cardboard tubing (about 5mm thick), with one end closed by a plastic membrane. Attached to this membrane is a long spring.
Hold the Thunder Drum so the spring dangles down...and wiggle the drum. What's it sound like? Yes - thunder! You can vary the tone and ferocity by holding your other hand over the open end and moving it about. Cosmic.
Designs vary, but they're all dot painted and all fantastic fun.
