Nataraj 12" Tongue Drum - Akebono - Product Information

This Nataraj 12" Tongue Drum is tuned to an akebono scale. Each tongue is cut to deliver a soothing but complex sound rich with layers of overtones and still having a strong fundamental pitch. A resonate hole at the bottom of the drum helps the projection of the instrument. The drum can be played in a lap or on a surface as well as by hands or with the included mallets. Rubber feet keep the instrument in place when being played on the floor or a table.

The Akebono scale is a musical scale commonly used in traditional Japanese music. Akebono and the Diatonic scale use the same intervals, but Akebono has no fixed tonic; as such, any Akebono note can be the tonic.

  • 12" diameter steel drum
  • 1 pair of mallets included
  • Bag for transport or storage included

Totally in love with this

Comments:

The feeling you get playing this drum is so rewarding. You can start by tapping and listening and it just loves you for it. This probably sounds stupid if you haven't tried it. But play one of these and it will make sense.

Excellent experience!

Comments:

The drum itself is great quality and it's been so fun to play with it. My husband can't put it down which works to all our benefits given how beautiful and haunting the sound is! I didn't realize (or read closely enough) that it came with the mallets which is awesome to not have to purchase separately. The carrying case it comes with is great too. The drum arrived very quickly which was an added bonus, so I can't speak highly enough of the service! I only wish Steve had an actual brick and mortar location where I could go gawk at all of the awesome world products he has. Thank you Steve!
