Teenyweeny kenkeni - bamboo - 8" diameter, 30cm high

A kenkeni is super double-ended "dundun" stye drum that's brilliant for very young children. This one is made small for young children but is good for any age.

These drums are made from fast-growing bamboo and are really tough. They're great favourites with young players and can be used outdoors providing they're kept reasonably dry. The skins are extra tough goatskin and will withstand years and years of use.

It is extremely robust and comes with a good soft beater. The drum itself is very tactile – made of bamboo, animal hide, string – and makes a satisfying thud. It isn’t particularly loud and is small enough for children to carry themselves.

We have included this kenkeni in our Nursery Shaker and Drums n Eggs Kits.


N.B. For SEN settings - please put a note with your order to indicate that it's needed for an SEN setting, so that we know to include the relevant materials.

More about the Teenyweeny kenkeni - bamboo - 8" diameter, 30cm high

It is very satisfying to play as you just hit it with the beaters provided. You can play it by standing it on its end and just playing the uppermost surface or you can put it on its side and play both ends. As it has a handle you can pick it up with one hand and play it with the other.

The traditional way of playing this drum is more technical but this drum is ideal for very young children right up to adults, to explore in their own ways.

These dun-dun types of drums are incredibly robust and will take children sitting on them, hitting them hard or leaving them outside in the damp. (Don't leave them out in the rain for long though!)
