A huge stick with open aperture, large bell, low backpressure and highly resonant sound; I found the transition between the drone and toot easy, however the player needs some experience to be able to hit the ‘dups’. I recommend this instrument for those players who are looking for a ‘slow-burner’ instrument for sound-bath on self and others.
