    I bought a big one and mic up inside to give a fat kick drum sound and tapping sound through the speaker just like sound from Ba Cissoko’s early albums. Fun to play, I cut out circle of thick rubber mat and play on it! Great fun and unique sound, High recommend try put mic inside and play from speaker!
