Tongue Drums

Wooden Tongue/Slit Drum

8-Tone Padauk and Cherry

These finely crafted wooden drums, influenced by African and Central American designs, are appropriate for all ages. Having excellent tone, yet practically indestructible, my drums can be played and enjoyed by anyone. Individual tones are obtained by varying the length of each wooden tongue cut into the top. You get 6 or 8 different tones but these tones are not tuned to particular notes or key. Instruments have either Ash (blonde), Oak or Cherry sides with Padauk tops. The included drumsticks are of dowels and Superballs. The 8-tone is approx. 17 1/2" x 8" x 7" with the 6-tone being somewhat smaller. Sizes will vary.
