Ipu (hula percussion instrument)

Item Description

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 naturally-dried gourds.

Due to being made of natural materials, each ipu's shape, coloring, size, thickness, and sound will differ, making each unique.

  • If you would like a specific size, color, etc. for your Ipu please let us know in the "Special Request" section of the checkout page. We strive to accomodate all special requests.


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


Ipu size: circumference of part with most girth:

  • Children: circumference less than 20”
  • Small: circumference 20” - 22.75”
  • Medium: circumference 22.75” - 26.5” (** Currently not available due to material shortage. Delivery date pending.)
  • Large: circumference 26.5” - 30.75”
  • X-Large: circumference more than 30.75”(*Order-made; please inquire pricing, as it will vary depending on size)

*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 can be cleaned and does not render the Ipu defective.

** Any damage as a result of negligence, misuse, or abuse above normal use, will be repaired free of charge under this warranty however return shipping costs will be the responsibility of the customer.

When I ordered my ipu (an item I found NOwhere else!) I was told it would take 8 to 10
weeks to arrive. It came 5 days later! I would use Aloha again without hesitation.

This one one was cool and affordable also. On Youtube, there were one person demonstrations and explanations of how to produce the fundamental tones/sounds and this one had the quality to reproduce them well. The rope is great for helping hold it without dampening the sound with your hand grip.

These are great. Inexpensive. They play well for those, like me, who's priority is their musical performance. While not my purpose for them, they could also look beautiful as decoration additions to a Hawaiian looking interior, or to a general, or mixed source interior
