Babel Drums are circular stainless steel tongue drums securely mounted onto their frames designed for permanent outdoor installation. Precision tuned and available with 8-notes (Large) or 6-notes (Small). The Babel Drum should be played with the hands, preferably by striking with the fingertips. Their mellow tones are never brassy or too loud - perfect for musical exploration in the fresh air.

Available in a Large or Small Version. The large version produces a range of eight beautiful notes in the G-major scale. The Small Version has six notes tuned to the C-major scale.

Playing the Babel Drum is a wonderful unique hand drumming experience.
