Manufactured from stainless steel, Babel Drums are a part of the family of percussion instruments that consists of Hand pans, Hank, Tank, and Tongue Drums.
This large stainless steel tongue drum can create beautiful melodies with remarkably long sustain. This is our larger and more popular version and has an eight-note layout in G-Major - the sound is amazing.
Securely mounted onto a frame, these beautiful drums are designed for permanent outdoor installation. Babel drums should be played with the hands, preferably by striking with the fingers. However, in some locations such as elderly care homes or special needs environments, where players may suffer from a weak or painful grip / or have limited dexterity, may find it more difficult to produce a clear sound with just their fingers. In these cases Babel/Petal Drum Mallets can be purchased separately.
No previous drumming experience is required to play a Babel Drum and both children and adults will enjoy improvising with the mesmerizing sounds they produce. The mellow tones are never brassy or too loud - perfect for musical exploration in the fresh air.
Babel Drums make wonderful alternative memorials or remembrance gifts to remember someone cherished in the community. Installed in a special place they loved or donated to a local school, church, woodland, or park, Percussion Play offers to custom engrave an instrument (where possible) to personalise it at no extra charge.
