Product Description

The Classic Krin Log Drum (also kolokolo, lokole, kreen, kreenyi) is a great intermediate level instrument – suitable for use in learning how to play krin, in schools, and in percussion ensembles. Hand carved in Ghana, this instrument is similar to the Krin – a slit log drum from Mali and Guinea. While there are two distinct notes from the carved keys between the slits, creative drummers can find many more sounds to add to the range of sound this instrument is capable of making. Here is what this authentic log drum from Ghana features:

  • 8-10 inch OSD wood, 18-20 inch full length, 5-7 lbs
  • Hand carved out of a solid piece of Mansonia wood
  • Wood seasoned and hand-carved in Ghana, thickly coated with shea butter
  • Pair of 12in mallets included
  • The representative photos above are of one randomly selected log drum; minor variations in wood color and size are standard among our in-stock inventory
  • The purchase of this product sustains livelihoods for cultural artisans in West Africa.
