Northern California musician and instrument builder Barry Hall is the master of this Web site, created to familiarize the public with (and, obviously, sell) the ceramic instruments he designs. From Udu Drums to Doubmeks, this site offers images of the instruments and also audio bytes of their sounds as well. We had a lot of fun listening to them and identifying songs we'd heard them in, but didn't know what the heck they were. The audio files are very small, but extremely well-produced. The site is small, well-designed, with links to many other resources. It's quite a concise page: You won't waste any time trying to find your way around to get the information you want. Even if you're not into ceramic insturments, visiting Burnt Earth is worth the trip -- for the educational value alone.
