Hello Everyone! 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. Standard Features: – Choice Of Scale(s) – Choice Of Color(s) – Rubber Mallets – Instructional Booklet – Feather Etchings on Tongues/Central Geometry Etch – Red Cedar Sound Hole Plug – Removable Rubber Feet – Internal Rubber Dampening System Optional Features: – Tuning Magnets (For 440Hz or 432Hz tuning) – Added Pick-up System (Please allow additional time for this option) – Carrying Bag – Timpani Mallets A list of scales and available keys for the Ascension 8th, 9th and 18th Realm drums as well as scale information and audio recordings can be found on our Sound Models page. We look forward to providing you and your family with high-quality instruments into 2017 and beyond. Brynn Kindred Spirit Drums
