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. The huge demand for the popular hand pans and the relatively few creators has left people longing for a product they have no means of accessing.


These circular stainless steel tongue drums are securely mounted onto their frames and are designed for permanent outdoor installation. These beautiful drums require no previous drumming experience and children and adults enjoy improvising with the mesmerizing sounds they produce.


Precisely tuned and available with 6-notes (Small) or 8-notes (Large). The drums should be played with the hands, preferably by striking with the fingertips. Their mellow tones are never brassy or too loud - perfect for musical exploration in the fresh air.


The small version produces a range of six beautiful notes in C-Major and the larger more popular version has eight-notes in G-Major the sound is amazing. This steel drum can create beautiful melodies with remarkably long sustain.


Babel Drums are very easy to play. We recommend playing using the pads of your fingers, however you can also play with fingertips or the side of the thumb or a mix of all three. A quick tap onto the drums smooth surface and pulling away quickly like you’ve touched something hot produces a beautiful melodic tone - do not leave the finger on the drum unless you wish to damp the sound. The strike should be fast and soft at the same time and the hand should be open and loose. Where you strike of course makes a lot of difference too, with the larger tongues producing lower notes and smaller ones the higher notes. A wide range of tones can be created through experimenting and developing different playing techniques.


Playing the Babel Drum is a wonderful unique hand drumming experience.
