Natural Ipu

Item Description

This natural Ipu is not varnished.
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.

Great product with excellent sound. I will say it'd be better to go for the bigger size to get better sounds if you can afford it.
