Babel Drum Music Equipment
This is our smallest and most compact stainless steel tongue drum. This version has six beautiful notes it’s very easy to play, requiring only your hands to create a variety of different tones.
The small Babel Drum is tuned to a C major pentatonic scale, producing a pure tone that is warm and has plenty of clarity to it.
Securely mounted onto a frame, these beautiful drums are designed for permanent outdoor installation. Babel drums should be played with the hands, preferably by striking with the fingers. However, in some locations such as elderly care homes or special needs environments, players could find it more difficult to produce a clear sound with just their fingers and so mallets can be purchased to combat this if required.

How To Play The Babel Drum
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. 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.
