Hand painted drum has a diameter of 300 mm and a weight of 4.8 kg. The drum is made of high-quality resonant metal with a thickness of 3 mm and creates a beautiful melodic and surprisingly long-lasting sound due to the specific round shape – similar to bells or Tibetan bowls. We have been producing a large number of tools for a long time and our modern production guarantees top quality.
The drums are hardened in an oven at a high temperature and thanks to the high-quality surface treatment, they do not require further processing or protection. Musicians and a lot of children, who are the most natural teachers, helped us with the tuning of the drums and the tone distribution of the individual tongues. These drums are covered with durable powder paints that do not affect the sound.
The play is intuitive, there are no rules for how it should or should not be played, so anyone can enjoy the play on the Spolum Drum without the slightest musical education. On these types of drums we rocommend to play slowly so you can enjoy pleasant long soothing tones. Quick altering blows suppress the sound of other petals.
For easy learning of new melodies and cleaner sound, we recommend buying a Drum Stopper eventually Magnet in the lotos form. You can purchase both in the “Accessories” section. The drums are ideal for frequent use (kindergartens, schools, hospitals…etc.). The playing is easier with drumsticks but when your skills improve, you can only play with your fingers. We send you a handmade drumsticks to the drum as a gift so that you can immediately start playing.
Our drum allows so-called multiplayer, which means that it can match the play of two or more players and by that it brings together not only children but also adults. That is why we often hear from our customers that the drum helped them overcome difficult times.
You can infinitely improvise not only with the playing itself, but the drum can also complement the sound of other instruments in an original way. It all depends on your imagination.
Note: Due to the fact that the drums are handmade and in order to maintain the quality of the sound, we cannot apply many layers of paint. For that reason the surface may not be perfectly flat. The displayed drum color may also differ from the actual one due to the settings and quality of your monitor.
