Babel Drums

Babel Drum outdoor play installPlaying the Babel Drum is a wonderful unique hand drumming experience. Fabricated from stainless steel our Babel Drum has been carefully tuned to replicate the sweet sound of steel pans. Played with the hands, preferably by striking with the fingertips, the 8 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 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. Let the drum sing, do not leave your finger on the drum. A wide range of tones can be created through experimenting and developing different playing techniques. The beautiful sounds from these drums are quiet enough to be close to classrooms.
