Hand made in British Columbia by talented artist Brynn Klingwall of Kindred Spirit Steel Drums
This 12" 8 note Primordial in E minor Diatonic is a beautiful steel-tongue drum made from mild-steel, and is our most cost-effective instrument. It is hand-etched with our special Lotus design and each tongue is round-cut with a fundamental tone, all tuned with Linotune. It is a beautiful compliment to G major.
Standard Features Include:
An internal and external powder-coated finish (Base and top-coat), an internal rubber dampening system, 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.
How to play a tongue drum
The notes are laid out on each of the drums so that you can create a most beautiful melody by starting at the bottom and alternating right and left hands as you go around the instrument. You can also play a beautiful tune by moving around the instrument in a circular manner.
Watch a video that I made while out in the forest. I offer a few different ideas to create your own tunes.
