Primordial Series (8 Notes)

The Primordial Series is our most affordable steel tongue drum model, and comes in 3 distinct finishes:  Aqua Burst, Solar Burst and Forest Burst and our beautiful laser-cut emblem adorning the center brings it all together.

The Primordial series is only available in a few select scales and keys, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  If you do not see the scale you are looking for please consider one of our Ascension series, or our Relics series.

*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.
