Jay Cat Ashiko Drums are cone shaped, single headed Hand Drums. They were originally developed in the 19th century as a means of conserving Wood – Ashikos are constructed with staves, similar to many barrels.
Ashiko drums have a remarkable tonal range – deep, resonant Bass tones and crisp, clean High tones. The Ashiko can be used as a lead drum !!!
“Two hips and one hooray for Jay’s beautiful Ashikos. I took one off his hands and I can’t even begin to describe the craftmanship that these drums have in addition to their incredible sound. Anyone looking for a new drum should seriously consider Jay’s Ashikos. He’s excellent at making them! ”
