CAN I PLAY MY AM DRUM BY HAND?
-------------------------------------------

Yes! AM Drums can be played by hand or with rubber-tipped drum sticks (provided). 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. When using sticks, the sound is much louder and clearer, which is great for busking, performance or making recordings.

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

Here is another example of an AM Drum being played by hand, by a talented percussionist at a festival (bear with it, it starts slowly):

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT AM DRUMS
-----------------------------------------------------

AM Drums are steel tongue drums, otherwise known as hank / tank / slit drums or sometimes handpans. They are an alternative to the Hang, that well-known Swiss steel instrument (that used to cost around 1200 euros, but which is no longer available), but they are not the same. AM Drums are a much more affordable and accessible alternative, yet still have a similar sound and can be used for busking, recordings etc etc.

Ma Rustic has been making steel tongue AM Drums for many years and has perfected the art, so that tuning, form and paintwork are all of the finest quality.

GOOD VIBRATIONS
-----------------------

AM Drums have a warm, harmonious sound which resonates with vibrations in the human body, so they can help you to find an inner balance and strength. This is our inspiration for making them and we hope to spread love as far and wide as possible through our instruments.

They are very easy to play and encourage you to find your creativity. No musical experience or skill is needed.

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 :-)

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. Photographs are for impression only.

If you have chosen from a photograph, we strive to make your drum as similar as possible to the photo, and the best possible. Each one is custom made so it is unique, and there may be some slight variation.
