Hello- Here's last week's invention: a Blue Man Group type PVC tubing affair with the notes arranged exactly like a hang drum. Complete dimensions and con- struction info is on my page: http://DennisHavlena.com It's played with dollar-store flip-flops, or with fingers (quieter). Scale is D minor, pentatonic, but the thing could be made in any key. Tune is Irish: "Star of the County Down". I realize that metal hang drums have a very beautiful and unique sound, but so do PVC tube instruments. By no means am I belittling anything here -- just experimenting and having a world of fun in the process.
GREAT NEWS: although a real, Swiss-made hang drum is extremely difficult to obtain these days, Pantheon Steel, a maker of beautiful steel drums ("steel pans") is just starting to sell their version of the Hang drum called the HALO hand-pan. See halo.pantheonsteel.com for details. They have a demo video & the Halo sounds beautiful!
