Ipu (Brown)

Item Description

This Ipu is painted outside in natural brown.
The ipu is a common hula percussion instrument made using real gourds and polished with a glossy finish. Our ipus vary in sound depending on its thickness and size. There are three sizes available: small, medium, and large (see chart below).

Holding the Ipu at its neck and striking the bottom-right corner with the base of your right thumb, or tapping with your fingertips, are two ways to play the Ipu.

Ipus are natural instruments made by natural-drying gourds.

Due to the natural material of the instrument each instrument’s shape, coloring, size, thickness, and sound will differ, making each unique.

(If you have a specific size, color, etc. for your Ipu please write your request in during checkout. We will strive to send an instrument most suited to your request.)

The manufacturers hand-craft all Ipus, and we promise to send one-of-a-kind, unique pieces to our customers.

Size: circumference of part with most girth

Children: circumference less than 20”
Small: circumference 20” ? 22.75”

*Children’s and X-Large sizes are considered special orders, and may take a few weeks till shipment depending on the availability of raw materials.

*Please note that currently the order for the Ipu may take more than 8 weeks to ship due to a shortage of the material.

*Because the product is made of natural materials, we cannot manufacture all Ipus to be exactly the same size or shape.

*Mold may develop due to the natural-drying process of the raw gourd, but does not render the Ipu defective.
