Hand made in British Columbia by talented artist Brynn Klingwall of Kindred Spirit Steel Drums
This 12" 8 note Primordial in F Aeolian 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.
Soothing, Transforming, Eloquent.
The Aeolian mode is a the natural minor scale. It is transformative and very soothing, with closely connected intervals allowing for smooth transitions and tension. It is a very popular scale for yoga classes and meditation, where more expressive music is desired. Reminiscent of classical piano, beautiful musical forms can be created within its note range. Our second most popular minor scale, and one of our favourites.
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.
