Hi, are you still making this truly cosmic tongue drum with the amazing paint job? What scale do you have it tuned? It would help if you name the drums you make, offer scales you can tune them to, and sizes available, stuff like that would come in real handy. You obviously love what you are doing, it shows in the sound sculptures you make, very cool.
Hi Greg :)
This particular drum came out awesome in many ways. They all have a uniqueness to them. Thanks for your input, I'm slowly going through videos adding in the tuning and details. I'm just so busy with everything most of the time that it takes a while to refine all the old stuff.
The best thing I can do is continue to adapt and do things as I go from the present moment.
This drum was tuned to pentatonic minor but had an uncanny resonance within the shell that gave it such a beautiful sound. I wanted to keep it but someone finally pried it from my hands.
It was an 18" with a nebula paint job. Nebulas always come out differently due to the random factor of me throwing a few colors everywhere.
Presently, the 16" has become more of the standard. I may soon discontinue 18" drums in this specific fashion making them taller for more 'boom' while keeping the original 16" and eliminating the 14" all together.
A lot has happened since this drum. I've begun tuning a center 'rest area' for the percussive pauses, they have a tablaish center now to get the beats going before hitting the notes around the perimeter. I'm really not too sure how many people notice this or take advantage of the idea, but it works for me and I've played percussion for a long time. I find it's important to have the percussive feel and not just be limited to tones. It opens up room for more complex rhythms.
I think this might be the one I want. Maybe, they all sound beautiful that is why I wanted so to come see and meet them all in person. There is no name for( one of your all time favorites) so I will call it Melodic vibration.
Can you recreatethis sound? Absolutely amazing! Must have one
Hi, this drum - the sound, the look, everything is amazing. You mentioned several months ago that you're considering revising the size of this one.. have you already implemented this change? I love the way the drum is now.. as 18" .. but I'm curious if the 16" is better. What are the current stats for this particular drum? --- size? and cost? and also, what is the wait time right now? Thanks, you can email me directly.
ready to purchase drum that sounds just like this if possible <> let me know what i must do etc <> thanks<>peace
