These new larger than life Flower Petal Drums inspired by the natural world will be sure to create a striking focal point and add year-round interest to music parks, sensory gardens, and playgrounds.

Percussion Play has taken one of its most popular products the Babel Drum - the sweet-sounding stainless steel tongue drum – and given it a floral upgrade.

With designs based on the Sunflower, Forget-Me-Not, Daisy, and Poppy these curvaceous Petal Drums are charmingly simple and sure to brighten up outdoor spaces all year round.

Each ‘Petal Drum’ contains a 250mm diameter 6-note Babel Drum (steel tongue drums) encased with appropriately shaped aluminum ‘petals’, securely mounted to a stainless-steel frame.

Each Drum is precision-tuned with a particular scale.

The whole instrument is given a highly durable and water-proof powder-coated finish.

Products

Daisy Petal Drum

Tuned in A-Minor (A-C-D-E-G-A). The A-Minor Pentatonic scale is one of the most widely used scales of all and common in blues, pop, and rock music. It is easy to learn and essential when improvising in a blues style.

Forget-Me-Not Petal Drum

Tuned to C Major Pentatonic (C4 D E G A C5). C Major very distinct, pleasant-sounding scale that, despite ancient origins, is as fresh and useful in improvisation today as it has ever been.

Sunflower Petal Drum

Tuned to a C Pygmy scale (C-D-Eb-G-Bb-C). Originating in African culture, the Pygmy scale is a form of Dorian mode (a mode being halfway between a minor and a major scale). Gentle and sweet, its sound inspires introspection and meditation.

Poppy Petal Drum

Tuned to the A Akebono scale (A-B-C-E-F-A), a traditional well-known Japanese scale with a distinct oriental sound that is easy and intuitive to learn.
