A log drum is a type of unpitched percussion that creates its resonance with two tongues that are carved into a wooden box. This box is usually made out of cherry or maple wood. The two tongues are carved in a manner that one is a higher pitch than the other one. When a tounge is struck, it vibrates, resonating through the box-like chamber and creating a dark mellow tone. The instrument is to be played with soft rubber or yarn mallets.

The modern equivalent of the ancient hollow tree trunk!
