|Look:||The tapani is a double-sided drum formed of a circle of finely sanded white ironwood stretched across with two pieces of hide. The hide is laced in place with lengths of stiffly braided black and grey cord. Running parallel down the middle of the tapani are three chains of ebony knotwork that have been stained into the pale ironwood, the middle one substantially larger and more intricate than the simpler braids bordering it.|

Bard Recall: The ironwood tapani is a double-sided drum often fashioned from strips of laminated wood. Slender, oversized frames supporting stretched hides adorn each end, held in place with cords or rawhide thongs. Those who play the tapani can adjust the tension (and in doing so, the tone) of the instrument by tightening their hands upon those cords.
