LP Iya Bata Drum Small 6 1/2" & 12 1/2" heads - LP490-AWC
LP Founder Martin Cohen, first came across Bat' drums more than 40 years ago at a religious ceremony in the Bronx, New York. Traditionally Bat's are ceremonial drums that are played in groups.At least three people sit, each with a different size drum, and act out 'call and answer' patterns which are played on the drums. Contemporary drummers often use two or three Bat's in a stand on their percussion set-up.
