This exotic colour changes colours depending on how the light hits it. It is a sparkly metallic that changes from dark blue to purple to brilliant blue in the direct sun. We use a powder coat paint but not just any powder we use an exotic 2 part/coat system that creates a more durable & scratch resistant finish.Made with the lowest Environmental footprint possibleno paint with VOCs, no lead, no hazardous waste from etching or engraving. Quality throughout from the 13 gauge High Quality US produced stainless steel to improve sound, sustain, resonance, purity and durability to the tuning that meets Symphonic tuning standards. We also use Stainless Steel instead of the normal low carbon steel which may contain traces of lead and will rust on the inside of the drum at the seam. Due to our sound sculpturing we have been able to eliminate the "Steel Tank Overtone" as well as the large hole in the bottom or top of the drum both of which are present on many other drums of this type. 1 Bass / 1 Mid-range and 6 High Notes. On the playing heads which improves sound, sustain, resonance and overall durability over the thinner 14 gauge low carbon steel used to make other drums of this type. Plus you don't have to worry about rust forming on the inside of the drum! The Parabolic resonance Chamber combined with our high quality 13 gauge steel creates a drum with optimal resonance for its size.
The playing tabs are perfectly spaced for optimum playability and harmonics between the other notes. Can be used for playing, meditation as well as Therapeutic Treatments. For ease in transportation- only 3 Lbs (1.4 Kilos).So it will fit into your knapsack or rucksack - 3.25 inches total height by 9.75 inch diameter. To maximise the "sweet spot" and to add a bit of symbolism (see "The Notes" below).
Shape: We chose a Octagonal shape (patent pending) for our notes for Three basic reasons. The first is because in our opinion they just look better than the big rectangles or simple curved lines. The second is it focuses your attention on the "Sweet Spot" of the note which increases playability. Third because of the symbolism associated with the octagon (8 steps to enlightenment, 8 fold path, etc) Spacing: The spacing of the notes is important. If you have a lot of notes jammed in very close to each other when you strike one note it will partially activate the notes next to it, which causes a certain amount of harmonic distortion and interference.
Our unique octagonal shape allows us to fit in 8 notes while still allowing plenty of space horizontally and vertically between them. The Vibedrum has been around since 2008 and has been produced in the USA the entire time. The sound quality of the drum is excellent and we have designed this drum to give optimal tones along with ease of portability.
Each drum is hand tuned and tested. For more information such as sound clips of our scales, pictures, videos or other information please google us.
