Hand made in British Columbia by talented artist Brynn Klingwall of Kindred Spirit Steel Drums
This 12" 8 note Primordial series in F Pygmy 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.
Searching, Yearning, Flowing.
The Pygmy scale is a minor pentatonic scale, with a yearning quality. Use of the Pygmy scale has grown in popularity since the invention of the Hang (instrument) in the year 2000, handpan’s such as the Halo and also steel tongue drums. All of which have been made using sound models based on the Pygmy scale.
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.
