Product Description

*SOUND SAMPLES - search for "HAPI Drum, Steel Tongue Drum" on YouTube to hear our drums*

Our smallest and most compact steel tongue drum. Anyone who wants an easy to play intuitive instrument can play this drum. You don't need a musical background to enjoy it. Ideal for jamming and playing percussive beats. Enjoy creating a soothing harmonic journey. This drum uses the same patented (D620,041S) eight note layout as our other drum models which adds harmonic tones to each note when played. The strong meditative tones are calming and great for relaxing. Take it outside to enjoy on a nature hike or around the campfire. The bottom port helps let the sound out to fill the room and rubber feet allow it to be set on any surface for play. Attractive and durable protective powder coat finish inside and out.

Scale: D Akebono. The Akebono scale originates from Japan. It produces a meditative/exotic sound. It sounds great played with Western and Eastern instruments.

Playing with mallets. Our mallets are designed to create a very clear tone. When using mallets, hold the mallet lightly and let it drop onto the note. This creates the ideal tone.

Playing with hands. Use the pad of only one finger to strike the note. Use a wrist motion to slap the finger off of the note. It’s all in the wrist, let your finger lightly bounce off the note like the mallets do. Start learning on the largest notes and then once you have good technique, move to practicing on the smaller notes.

HAPI Drum dimensions: 8" x 5.5". Weight: 3.4 lbs. Scale: D Akebono. Color: Hammered Copper.

Includes: HAPI Mini Drum, Mallets, Travel Bag with super durable nylon fabric, Instruction Booklet that has mallet and hand playing techniques, as well as practice exercises.

Such a great investment! I suffer from PTSD and Chronic Depression, so whenever the anxiety happens or I feel an on coming episode, this little magical drum helps me focus my attention to its soothing sound, and great vibrations. I was really happy that my therapist told me of such a great product! I can't wait to purchase its counter part very soon!

PROS: This is very relaxing. It is a very intuitive instrument. The only way you can make a dissonant sound is to try to make a chord of two notes. This is best played with the little rubber mallets that come with it. The mallets produce a much nicer tone than fingers do. It has a soft relaxing, chime-like sound. It is very small.

CONS: It is a little too small to hold on your lap comfortable and play the instrument. It only has eight notes, so what you can play is limited. It is difficult to play with fingers to produce a very nice tone. The small size could be seen as a con as well.

Everything considered this is a very cool instrument that everyone loves to play and loves to listen to.

Beautiful HAPI mini steel tongue percussion drum. My son loves musical instruments, so when he got enough money saved, he asked to purchase this drum. This is extremely well made and has the most beautiful sound. We love when we are sitting outside in the cooler evenings and he is playing this drum. It reminds me of nicely tuned wind chimes. Very relaxing way to end the day. This comes in a nice protective bag and also included are drum mallets. He plays using just his hands but one several occasions has used the mallets. The pitch seems higher when using the mallets. We love this percussion drum. Thank you TDS!! Excellent!

Beautiful. Lovely tones. Nice sculpture. Radiant color. Excellent service. Great meditation tool. Case and mallets are also high quality. Recommend this for adult meditators and not for group drumming purposes or kids--they would grow bored with the comtemplative sounds. Worth every penny.

Purchased as gift for son. He loves it. It has a very soothing sound. Son is very musically inclined but product came with instructions and note chart so even I could understand how to play it. Drum comes in two different musical keys. Will eventually purchase the drum for the other key just so he can have both.

I bought this for my 28 year old son as a birthday gift. He has played drums/percussion instruments for over 15 years now. He loved it. He looked over the instruction manual for a few minutes and began playing right away. It is a beautiful looking instrument and has a sweet beautiful sound.

We just love this drum. We leave it out so whenever a moment of inspiration hits, we can play a tune. It is small, easy to carry, and sounds great.
