UTUR XIII (Rope Tension Prototype)
Read here about what UTUR is.
Size: 14 x 4,75 Inch
A previous and current experimental prototype of a rope tension drum. Strictly speaking the current version isn't a rope tension drum, because the tension gets created by screws. Hardware is made from aluminum, brass and Kevlar rope. The finish of the drum is made from paper, paint and laquer and was painted by me and my (by that time) 1 year old daughter.
This drum sounds absolutely fabulous. Check the Youtube-link
Prize: because of it's experimental nature this drum is not for sale.
