The possibilities of sound in this drum is very broad. But its main feature which I love - it is a deep, hypnotic bass. At home recording as a hook I use it mainly just as a bass instrument. This model of the drum is made of fiberglass. The apparent advantage of fiberglass is its strength, allowing the drums to do with thinner walls and to achieve a more powerful and confident sound in the game. In addition, fiberglass weigh less and you are not forced to worry about accidental bumps during transport. There is also an interesting technique of playing when the properties of the cavity changes with the help of water poured into the pot. This drum takes a truly mystical sound with water inside. Due to the greater density fiberglass drum gives more responsive to changes in the level of water in the cavity, opening the almost fantastic possibilities of the instrument.
Ok, the drum itself seems sturdy, should be holding forever and honestly, that's not something that goes for the ceramic ones. The sound is good, I really like the tone and I know that the sound really works out, but it should for that price as well... The one bad thing I can say about it is that it smells really weird, like cat pee or something...Now, it's not a powerful smell covering the room, but look into that hole to see the structure and you will regret it FAST! All and all, abit pricy, but certainly worth it if you don't want a ceramic one!
