Rattle drum with beater. Drum is constructed of a wooden core with a long thin centre that widens on both ends, where they are covered with stretched skin. The drum skins are attached to a rounded wooden rim by thick thread. Dozens of twisted strands of hide stretch between the two rims, partially hiding the wooden core. A leather strap is tied to a strand on one side, and a woven rope is attached to one rim by a thong of hide on the side opposite. Inside the wooden core are small dark brown seeds that create a rattling sound when the drum is moved. Part b is a beater carved from a single piece of wood, with a handle that narrows as it reaches a bend at top that culminates in a cone shape that is used to hit the drum.
