8 notes Spacedrum is a melodic percussion in metal. It comes to complete the new instruments' family called "Handpans" (Hang©, Bells, Halo...) and "Tongue Drums" composed by the Garrahand or the Hapi Drum for instance...
With its medium diameter and fluid shape, the 8 notes Spacedrum is very easy to handle and was designed to be suitable for most people (including children).
Thanks to a long research & development work in partnership with an engineering high school we’re happy to release the 4th generation Spacedrum, made out of a special stainless alloy. The properties of this special alloy are particularly adapted for the outdoor playing: totally rustproof, even in the extrem climates (see shores, tropics...), hard enough to keep the tuning for years (in normal conditions of use).
Added to that, the Spacedrum Evolution (4th gen) develops more sustain and more sound volume while respecting the Spacedrum original sound.
This instrument is fragile and needs to be protected when it's not played. Our bags are specially designed for a good protection of the Spacedrum.
The diatonic and pentatonic scales (major and minor) are often used in a pedagogical situations (music academies, schools, art therapy, early-learning activities...). They also suit to any type of artistic project.
You can play alone, or with someone else, with the instrument on your knees or on a stand. You can even turn it over and play with the sound-hole in a "Udu style".
The Spacedrum can be rubbed with the palm, beaten with sticks (specially designed) or simply touched by your fingers. It gives you a total freedom in terms of playing technique.
