The Udu thread got me rethinking this concept.
An open ended drum with a bayan head or ungabbed head; like a dumbek but with its bell coming out near the bottom/side so it can sit in a pillow and be played just like a bayan.
Has anyone strapped a bayan skin on any kind of open ended drum and heard if the sound is considerably amplified/modified ?

I assume that there would be little, if any, sustain. Doesn't the gab produce the tonal qualities because of the inner resonance of the drum cavity? Interesting topic.
