A set of 3 joined water Drums made from stainless steel and bronze with apertures for adding or subtracting water which is a way of tuning Trongos. The central larger drum is held between the legs so that the water may be activated by moving the legs as the Trongos are played.

This motion creates schiziosonic modulations and pre-echoes due to the different speeds of sound in air/metal/water. As both the top heads and the bottom heads can be played that makes for 6 heads though the central bottom head is a reach.

Trongos are a creation of Richard A. Waters, fine artist and inventor of the Waterphone. After your tour here, visit Richard's site for information and availability of his one-of-a-kind art and musical instruments at www.richardAwaters.com
