Helios 2.0 – 17″ – Double-Sided


The Double-Sided Helios 2.0 is a 17” overtone tonguepan made from a heat-treated high-carbon steel for optimal sound quality, and comes with a customize-able etching design. Each tongue on the Double-Sided Helios 2.0 is tuned with 1 overtone (an octave of the fundamental tone) using the Linotune program, to give additional layers to the sound profile. They have exquisite tonality which is closer to the sound and feel of a handpan than our other steel instruments.

Standard Features Include:

A 10 note scale on each side of the instrument (Major and relative minor), 2 pick-up systems with a pick-up jack on each side for plugging in easily, 6 felted magnetic rubber feet which can be taken off or added on quickly making these instruments very versatile.  2 spun shells of high quality steel-alloy, an internal and external powder-coated finish (pure clear-coat or clear with sparkles), an internal pick-up system and input jack, a wooden laser-cut emblem and sound-hole plug to improve the bass frequencies, rubber feet, instructional booklet, and a set of house-made mallets.

Legal Disclaimer:

*Caution* Please read these safety instructions before purchasing this product! 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 to young children and pets. Never leave young children alone with the mallets or magnets unsupervised as serious injury or loss of life can occur. *Dropping Danger/Heavy Instrument* Danger! Steel instruments are heavy and can cause serious damage to persons or property if dropped. Make sure hands are dry and clean before attempting to move the instrument.
