Developed specifically for children aged 4-10, the StartHED offers an easy and playful introduction to the world of drumming and bodhrán playing. A tool-less, three-point tuning system makes the drum easy to tune, and resistant to possible tuning mistakes or to being put out of tune by accident. Although the StartHED was designed for children (with rounded edges, and without any dangerous gaps, holes, or angles), it is NOT A TOY, but a musical instrument. As the tuning screws protrude from the frame, thus permitting the sound to escape even when placed on a flat surface, the StartHED can also be used as a table drum. The StartHED is equipped with a natural drum skin specifically selected for this purpose and is guaranteed to be of European origin (traceable!). A taped edge allows for a more harmonious sound. StartHED means joy of playing right from the start… so get StartHED!
