Ascension S – 12″ – 18 Notes


The Double-Sided Ascension is a beautiful steel tongue drum that comes with 18 exquisitely tuned notes (A 9 note Major scale and a 9 note minor scale) in a variety of scale combinations, colors, and frequencies!

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 rubber feet allow both sides of tongues to ring freely when sitting on the table/floor which is important to get the highest sound out of these instruments.  They 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 and they are an absolute dream to hold and play.  Select from Scale and KeyHertz, and Color options to create your perfectly personalized percussion instrument!

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.
