  • The person I bought this for likes it. Neither of us has a lot of experience with "steel" drums, so I can not really compare it to other steel drum alternatives. While this item is not inexpensive - the larger version is nearly twice as expensive - I am glad I got this size vs. the smaller version: kind of like the "Goldilocks" of the HAPI drums - more musical "presence" than the smaller version and much cheaper than the larger version.
    The box was well packed, the added travel bag is of superior quality. This will be my instrument for many long years to come.
