These high quality Batas are made from LP's specially selected, kiln dried, environmentally friendly Siam Oak. These are the most precisely made Batas available today. They feature a gracefully tapered shell with increasing thickness to the smallest point for a great, strong sounding drum. A natural rawhide head has been carefully chosen for optimum sound quality. A black nylon neck strap, tuning wrench, and LP Lug Lube are also included.
