I took a hiatus this Spring after the Christmas rush to sit down and redesign the Steel Tongue Drums we are offering here at Kindred Spirit Drums. After many hours experimenting in our workshop to develop the best sounding and most attractive Steel Tongue Drums we have come back to offer our "Ascension Series" of Steel Tongue Drums.
Our Ascension series of Steel Tongue Drums can be purchased in single-sided 8 or 9 note options, or Double-Sided 18 note drum options. We will no longer be producing the 10, 12 and 20 note drums that we were offering previously, and we are sorry for any inconvenience.
Each of our Ascension Series Steel Tongue Drums 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.

There is a special gift waiting to be discovered within the slow-moves of ancient landscapes...a magic that comes forth as our perception of linear time distorts and melts away in the contemplation of the past, present and future.
During these liminal moments, we can feel the great rivers of causality flowing all around us, and the deep energetic pull as our conciousness strains upon its moorings and our current mortal existence in the time-stream.
In such instances we are gifted the ability to comprehend our place in the universe, and to taste the ambrosia of eternity...perhaps all that death is, is the untying of our conscious moorings, and setting sail into these endless realms.
