Love this drum

Comments:

I was curious about Nataraj drums in other tunings, but settled on this one. I absolutely love it. I'm a beginner and it's very easy to get into. I was a little worried about quality because it's impossible to find one of these in real life and try it (the tiny one at Guitar Center -- not Nataraj -- is basically a toy), but this is a hefty 15 lb fella with amazing resonance. Good for therapeutic purposes. The included mallets are ok, I ended up ordering some yarn-wrapped ones off Etsy as well. Just be advised that 16" is probably bigger than you're thinking it is. Not a complaint, just something to be aware of if you have storage concerns or want it to be very portable (though the supplied carrying case is great and makes carrying it a breeze, I just wouldn't bring this on public transit).

Beautiful Tone

Comments:

I bought this Black Friday special as treat for myself, and it was well worth it. This has a beautiful tone and easy to play. People enjoy listening to it and playing it themselves. This is a quality product and the service and delivery from Steve Weiss Music was outstanding as always.

Excellent Tongue Drum!

Comments:

This Nataraj drum is well worth the money. Excellent tone. The drum produces a beautiful sounds with the lower notes sustaining their tone. With 10 notes there is a lot of harmony. The supplied mallets are good, but a little short, however, I find my "Vic Firth T-1" mallets a softer, peaceful pleasing sound. They are easier to hold too. Buy the drum. You'll like it.

Soothing and calming

Comments:

I love this! I got this because my arthritis does not allow me to play the piano anymore. I'm finding it easy to pick up and the sound is just gorgeous. I play for 45 mins. Before bed and I sleep so well. Even my friends love when it, they " I feel so relaxed". I highly recommend it. And they price, are you kidding me. $100.00 cheaper than others this size. It came with mallets and a carrying case. In my opinion, a must buy.
