It is painted like the picture - dark bronze background with gold detail of 'tree of life'.

The Pentatonic scale is recommended for beginners and for versatility. It is often used with children, to encourage creative expression. The key of G is mid-range, giving you a nice combination of deeper and higher notes.

432hz

To explain the benefits of 432hz tuning, it is easier if we refer you to some experts...

''Concert pitch A=432hz pitch can have profound positive effects on consciousness and also on the cellular level of our bodies. By retuning musical instruments and using concert pitch at A=432hz instead of A=440Hz, you can feel the difference of connecting awareness to natural resonance."

TUNABLE DRUMS

You can also opt to have the additional ''TUNABLE'' feature, which allows you to retune the notes yourself. It is still tuned to then same starting scale, as mentioned before, but you can flexibly alter each note individually, either subtly or more drastically, giving you a wide range of diffferent scales. This costs an extra supplement - available in the menu during the buying process.

N.B. Available for immediate and quick delivery.

Playing

No musical experience is needed - AM Drums are easy to play for everyone, including complete beginners.

AM Drums can be played by hand or with rubber-tipped drum sticks (provided).

The easiest way is with sticks, and this way the sound is much louder and clearer - is great for busking, performance or making recordings.

Playing by hands usually takes a little practise to get the right technique (though some people get it instantly), and it is a quieter, more personal experience.

This video shows a comparison between using your hands and using the sticks:

Tuning

AM Drums are very precisely and carefully tuned to the agreed scale and frequency. If this scale isn't what you want, then see our listings for a custom-made drum. That way the world is your oyster - we tune to all existing scales and frequencies.

Good vibrations

AM Drums have a warm, soothing, harmonious sound which resonates with vibrations in the human body, so they can help you to find an inner balance and strength. They are very easy to play and encourage you to find your creativity.

AM Drums can be used for therapeutic, healing / Reiki and holistic purposes - including meditation and personal awakening - as well as to accompany other instruments, such as string instruments and other kinds of percussion instruments.

Playing the AM Drum can be a deeply uplifting, spiritual experience. We invite you to try them out and find your own tune :-)

Ma Rustic makes AM Drums with love. When there is no longer any love going into the making of AM Drums, then they will stop. They are not in it for the money - their motivation is to share with the world the beautiful sound which can spread love and raise consciousness.

We'd love to connect with you. Please email us with your questions (acousticmage@gmail.com).

Disclaimer

AM Drums are made from recycled steel. The shape may have some indentations in it which originate from it's original form. This is just part of your AM Drum's character. It is purely cosmetic and does not affect the quality or tuning of the instrument in any way. Tongues which are slightly raised or pushed down, compared to other tongues, do not affect the tuning or sound in any way, as they are flexible. It is the nature of the smallest tongues [highest notes] to be quieter than the deeper tones. Please leave them as they are and do not try to force them upwards or downwards.
