The ibo (or udu) by Meinl is designed in the style of the Nigerian side hole pot drum. The ibo is made from durable fiberglass and not clay which makes the instrument practically unbreakable and the range includes two body shapes and three colourful designs. The ibo also incorporates an additional microphone hole in the shell and comes with a foam padded base for resting. From deep tones to incredibly sharp finger sounds the resonance of the ibo is quite remarkable. Whether live or in the recording studio the ibo tends to complement many musical styles and it responds beautifully to a variety of world percussion hand techniques.
