Introducing the hand-made tongue drum by Robert Towler. Robert produces beautiful instruments using local and exotic timbers. Click here to see his work on Instagram.
The tongue drum is a resonating box with wooden “tongues” on the playing surface, each of different sizes. They resonate at different pitches, giving the tongue drum its characteristic sound. They are not typically tuned to any given scale or even exact pitches. This makes each tongue drum unique in its sound and character.
