AM Drums

Steel tongue drum - hank or tank drum - similar to a hang or handpan

This drum is available as TUNABLE (optional), although it arrives PRE-TUNED to this scale - C Major 440hz.

Upgrading to 'tunable' is an optional extra, and you can choose not to have this feature. See options at check-out.

Tuned precisely to C Major, 440hz (the standard musical frequency). C D E F G A B C

TUNABLE means you can adjust it yourself (easily and reversibly) to other scales and frequencies, including C Major 432hz, which is our Chakra scale for meditation and grounding. You can also tune it to a wide variety of other scales in different, lower keys, and can also adjust it to 528hz (or A=444hz), which is the LOVE frequency for healing and DNA repair.
This gives you a wide/flexible range of scales/frequencies and everything in between. You can always go back to the original tuning again.

It is very easy to do, although we can give you online help and support to guide you, if you need it.

Listen to this musical scale here:

More about AM Drums (general info)

Steel tongue hank drums are the perfect instrument to take to a festival, for playing around the camp fire and/or jamming with friends. The sound carries a long way outdoors so you're bound to get attention. Being made of tempered steel, with a hard protective paint/varnish coating, it's tough enough to be taken anywhere.

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

AM Drums can be playing by hand or with rubber-tipped drum sticks (provided). Playing by hand usually takes a little practise to get the right technique (though some people get it instantly), and it's a quieter, more personal experience. Playing with sticks produces a louder, clearer sound, best for busking/performance or 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):
