These tongue drums are a modern take on the African slit drum used originally for long distance communication. This design is beautiful, portable and a lot of fun to play either solo or as part of a drum circle or percussion ensemble. It's a variation on my 8-note drum and comes with 2 mallets. it offers a lower "bottom end" sound than the 8-note design. I make them with select grain oak hardwood, and solid poplar. It also features a purpleheart wood accent stripe on both sides.
This is a beautiful gift for the musician or collector in your life!
