Description

Each Steel Tongue Drum is hand-made by our staff, with the note shapes and etchings all completed with hand-tools so each instrument is a unique piece of art. The drums are fully coated (inside and outside) with a beautiful and highly resilient powder-coating so they will not rust or tarnish. The colors we have chosen are exceptional and this high-quality finish leaves them feeling smooth and creamy in the hands; they are an absolute dream to hold and play.

Please select from Drum Type, Scale, Key, Hertz, and Color options to create your perfectly personalized percussion instrument!

*Custom scales are also possible.

*Caution* Playing your Steel Tongue Drum too hard can cause the tongues to bend, and cause the notes to dip slightly out of tune. To avoid this, we suggest using finger-tips, thumbs or soft-strikes with the mallets we provide to play your drums. It does not require a large amount of force to create a large sound from our instruments.

*Choking Hazard* Mallets, Magnets, and other small parts can provide a choking hazard. Never leave young children alone with the mallets or magnets unsupervised.
