Bossa Nova Bata Drums in gorgeous Mahogany Stain are made out of a solid plantation mahogany shell complete with chrome hardware. These differ fundamentally from the stave constructed bata drums of other major brands. Ours are lathe-turned from a single piece of wood, giving you authentic Cuban sound and unmatched durability. Our wood is sourced only from certified sustainable plantation mahogany farms in Thailand.
The traditional hoops hold down hand-selected buffalo skins, and the mechanical tuning system makes it easy to crank the skins tight for your Okonkolo, or loose and deep so your Iya can follow the dance steps.
Available in three sizes:
Onkonkolo 21" x 7" x 5.5" (small)
Itotole 24" x 10" x 7" (medium)
Iya 27" x 12.5" x 7.5" (large)
Hand Made. Hand Played. Bossa Nova Percussion Solid Construction Bata Drums have that authentic Cuban sound!
