Helios – 22.5″ – 10 Note


The Helios standard is a 22.5” tonguepan, made from a special stainless steel alloy.  A tonguepan is bridge instrument between a handpan and steel tongue drum, and the Helios has been in development since early 2018. The top shell is 2mm hand-spun, and the bottom shell is 1mm and hydroformed. The bottom shell has a specially built sound hole (Also known as a “Gu” or a “Port” on handpans) which helps to create a specific Helmholtz resonance.  This instrument comes with 10 notes tuned with a harmonic series (An octave and a fifth above the fundamental like a handpan), and with an internal support structure to isolate and improve the tonal qualities of the notes.

Standard Features: All Stainless steel body with formed sound-hole, internal structure, rubber feet, rubber-ring on the rim of the instrument, instructional booklet and 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.
