Babel drums – small and large
Fabricated from stainless steel, our babel drums have been carefully tuned to replicate the sweet sound of steel pans. Played with the hands, preferably by striking with the fingertips, the notes produce perfect musical tones typically associated with a tropical setting.
The babel drum is very easy to play. We recommend playing using the pads of your fingers; however, players can also use their fingertips, the side of the thumb, or a mix of all three. A quick tap onto the drum’s smooth surface and pulling away quickly as if you’ve touched something hot lets the drum sing, and produces a beautiful melodic tone.
A wide range of tones can be created through experimenting and developing different playing techniques. The melodic sounds from these drums are quiet enough to be close to classrooms.
The small babel drum has six notes, and can be provided as an installed product or as a hand-held portable instrument (above left.)
The large babel drum offers eight notes, and is shown on the right as an installed instrument.
