I purchased this as a gift for someone at Christmas. He loves it. He carried it around all day tapping and patting on the drum. Announcing his arrival into every room. And, yes, this was a grown man.

I only wish it was twice the size; it would have been awesome for my students to learn to play on. But it is beautiful just the way it is.
