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 hard finish with a long lasting shine. We are concerned about the environment which is why we use Powder Coat because it is. MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY than etching or engraving patterns into the steel with Hazardous Chemicals or spraying with paints that contain VOC's (volatile organic compounds).
We also do not make our drums from re-purposed propane tanks because these tanks have failed hydrostat test and so the metal is brittle and riddled with microscopic stress cracks. We use new high quality stainless steel and we form our own shells. Every Vibe Drum is handcrafted and born in the Arizona Desert. On the playing head which improves.

The Double Vibe Drum provides two playable heads with 9 tuned notes on each for a total of 18 notes. Each head (side) is tuned to a different scale. It can be played using the hands or with our specially-designed mallets. The unique design provides a hybrid sound, similar to striking a singing bowl or HandPan Drum, yet offers a more portable and user-friendly instrument.
Created using eighteen-notes, the Double Vibe Drum is typically tuned to major and minor pentatonic scales to ease the playing techniques and produce harmonious tones, and is arranged so that each note has its octave adjacent to it. This simple, logical and harmonically-beneficial layout makes the Vibe Drum the easiest and cleanest steel tongue drum available. It can be used for playing anything from a tune to soft meditational tones. Shape: We chose a Octagonal shape (patent pending) for our notes, even though it is much more costly to cut, 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 9 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.
