I bought this because I have a little obsession with ancient instruments. So this wild thing makes me wanna dance around the campfire while the big blue moon shining upon my face. In fact, the texture of a drum really reminds the moon. I like how much bass it has. Sometimes I wish it has less bass, but there are other drums for that. I cannot really think of any other cons than that. It's a really good drum. Perfectly combines with shakuhachi, didgeridoo, bells etc. If you wanna get wild, this is the thing.
