Bass Drums

The Pahu, Pa'u, or Tariparau bass drums are the heartbeat of any performance or Otea. Our bass drums shells and rims are 100% wood and are hand bent and glued into layers to get proper thickness and strength. 

We offer 4 sizes of bass drums and 3 options for the type of head, goat skin or vinyl, or one of each.

  • Small 14" diameter: $400 USD
  • Medium 16" diameter *most popular*:$400 USD
  • Large 20" diameter: $500 USD
  • Extra Large 22" diameter: $500 USD

Each drum is made using a design of your choice. When purchasing a bass drum or any of our skin drums, I will provide you with an email or message containing our current design selection (usually 40+ on hand) that you can choose from to make your drum unique.
