I get many emails asking about which frame drum for which situation and what is a good instrument to start with, here are some of my thoughts on the subject. All this is of course subjective and reflects my personal taste.
my name is David Kuckhermann. Welcome to my website. You can find lots of free tutorials and videos, and information about frame drums, cajon, Udu, Hang and other hand percussion, my different projects, my label and series of instructional DVDs. Make sure to check out the frame drum video podcast which features amazing percussionists from all over the world who share their music. I hope you have a good time here.
