Mundo is an instrument that is meant to be the
sound of a wooden shell and the side of a metal Timbale, mixed
together. The most common rhythm in Afro-Cuban music

usually played on the side of the Female (Larger) timbale. When
Timbales are not available, drummers often play this on the side
of their floor tom. Of course, this lends itself to finish damage on
the drum and not quite achieving the Metallic tone of the
Through extensive compositional analysis and
prototype testing by Gruv-X designers and artists, the
combination of American Rock Maple and Copper, was used to achieve this unique tone.
The Mundo mounts with the proprietary Gruv-X, Mono-Mounts
made famous by its predecessor the X-Click and fits on every
sized drum, from a 10 in. 6-lug to an 18 in. 8-lug. It has a Tone hole in
the upper half of the body that again, through much testing, was
found to lower the pitch closer to that of the large Timbale shell.
This Instrument is played on the side of the body with the stick,
creating a new, 1/2 wood and 1/2 metal sound and protecting your
floor tom’s finish.
