VITALITY THROUGH SOUND
Welcome to Kindred Spirit Steel Drums! Here you will find a variety of our hand-made steel percussion instruments.
We strive to create products with exceptional sound-quality and aesthetics, custom making each instrument for you.
Because of this, there may be a short waiting period between when your order is placed, to when it is completed and shipped.
Please scroll down and explore the different instruments and associated products we provide.
We are currently celebrating our re-vamped website and as a special thanks to all the Kindred Spirits out there, we are offering our 10 Note and Double-Sided Ascension series steel tongue drums at our wholesale price! However, there is only 1 of each scale choice available for this promotion, so once a selection is gone...it's gone! If you don't see what you are looking for, please continue scrolling down and select from our other Ascension, Mandala, and Primordial series. Thank you!
Our Ascension Series comes in 8, 9 and 10 note options in a variety of beautiful colors. Each instrument comes with feather etchings on the tongues, a lotus carved around the center laser-cut birch logo, and a lotus etched around the sound-hole on the bottom. They come with rubber feet, a wooden sound-hole plug and a set of tuning magnets (to tune them from 440Hz to 432Hz). These drums are absolutely beautiful to hold and play, and produce very clean tones.
The Ascension Series is 12"
"I use my steel tongue drums in the yoga classes I teach, in my therapeutic work with children and seniors and for my own personal enjoyment of music. My Ascension Series is not only to beautiful to look at, it sounds wonderful too!"
- Morgan Mathison
The Mandala Series is a beautiful Steel Tongue Drum that comes with 10 exquisitely tuned notes, and the Mandala Mini is a smaller 6 note version of this design that comes in a variety of scales, colors, and frequencies. There is a beautiful “Fractal Flower” etching in the center around our laser-cut emblem, with round-cut tongues.
Mandala Standard is 12", Mandala Mini is 9.5"
"I was one of the first recipients of the new Mandala Series (An E Major Pentatone) and I love it! Its a really great instrument to jam along with reggae songs and to play with friends."
- Brad Fox
The Primordial Series is our most economic instrument, and has 8 notes tuned to our most popular scales in the most common keys. This series comes in 4 standard color combinations (AquaBurst, ForestBurst, SolarBurst and AuroraBurst), and comes with rubber feet, a wooden sound-hole plug, mallets and an instructional booklet.
Primordial Standard is 12”, Primordial-Mini is 8”.
"The finest steel tongues I've encountered in terms of tonal quality, artistry and craftsmanship. Brynn is so friendly and helpful."

The Atlas series is a group of instruments that we have been developing to create a bridge between a steel tongue drum and a handpan. Made with a specially chosen steel and given a unique heat-treating process, they have a more expansive tonal quality (Some with a tuned harmonic series), and deeper resonance than a standard steel tongue drum due to their larger sound chamber, and at a more affordable price point than a traditional Handpan.
Expected release date: July 2018
Price Range: $750.00 - $1200.00
"I use my double-sided Ascension Series steel tongue drum which I pair with my didgeridoo and other instruments in sound journeys, music therapy and various live performances. I really enjoy the sound and craftsmanship of these instruments."

Creating Handpans/Sound Sculptures has been our dream since we started down this path of instrument fabrication. Our Hydro-formed handpan shells come in a few different types of steel: Raw, Nitrided, and Stainless (and there will be some powder coated varieties to come in the future). We are hopefully going to have our wait-list open by the Fall of 2018 and will hopefully have the first few instruments available and ready for purchase by Christmas.
Expected Release Date: Winter 2018/Spring 2019.
Price Range: $2500.00 - $3000.00
"I absolutely love my Primordial-Mini steel tongue drum. The color is so vibrant and the sound it makes is beautiful. It is small enough to bring to the beach, or anywhere else, with ease." - Krysta Powers
