The Udu, originated in Kenian traditional music, is usually made from clay.
Majid Drums has developed two wooden variations of the traditional Udu: the Ta-Udu and the Udu Wood.

The Ta-Udu’s corpus consists of ayous wood, a light, exotic wood with a beautiful and warm sound.
This gives the instrument a character of sound that is close to that of an indian tabla.
Additionally, the instrument is better protected against any kind of impact effect than the traditional clay instruments, due to its wooden corpus.

At the bottom of its corpus the Ta-Udu has a wooden striking surface that is 1mm thin.
An additional surface can be added to the side of the corpus on demand.

    Dear Majid, I received the instrument yesterday and just finished my first proper playtime with it. I absolutely love it! I’m completely blown away by the sound quality. The proportions and feel of the instrument are perfect. This is precisely the Udu I’ve always wanted since falling in love with the instrument some years back. It’s truly a masterwork. I really could not be any happier with it, thank you so much Majid.
    Best wishes
