It is formidable in its vastness, and mysterious in that much - despite James Cameron - unexplored. It holds countless species that have yet to be discovered. The waves when mellow can be instantly grounding for a person wishing to feel in touch with their environment, a relaxing bond is formed between human and nature. When violent, the waves inspire feelings of awe and terror and are a reminder of the ways of the planet and the power it holds over us.
This understanding and feeling of closeness with the earth is not directly available to all people, though the ocean is large, many of us do not have access to it. For those who are landlocked, or those who can't get enough of our giant water, the Ocean Drum is a cheaper alternative than a week-long seaside vacation. Ocean drums are filled with ball bearings, when tilted the bearings roll together from one end of the drum to the other recreating the soft crash of the tide. Allow yourself to be freed from dry, mundane earth, jump into a mental sea, and relax in the balance of water and land!
Via Meinl: "The Meinl Wave Drums create the soothing sounds of the surf, with a great new feature: we sealed the little steel balls between two drum heads, one synthetic and the other natural goatskin. This means you can choose between two completely different timbres within the same drum. A sealable filling port allows you to control the amount of steel balls inside."
