Music often gives me goose bumps, but I'm amazed at how much in these videos:





The website 1tonedrums.com says that the ECLIPSE drum is a combination of an African tongue drum and a Caribbean steelpan.

Their Facebook page says it was developed and crafted in Israel by Anton Koren & Asaf Lebovich.

Wow! What a sound!

Yup, they're also referred to as "Hang Drums". Cool stuff.

Here's a link to a hang drum solo. some have the "tongue" design, some have concave spots like this one.

Me, too!


And I've been thinking about my grandson, who will be two in December. I'm always thinking about things to introduce him to as he's growing up, after observing his interests and desires. I've been fantasizing him playing one! And the two of us doing a duet. LOL!

I love the fact that they're a drum but you also get a melody.

It's interesting that the Wiki article says this:


The Hang is sometimes referred to as a hang drum. The 'drum' label, however, is discouraged by PANArt: "Treating it as a drum and promoting the name Hang Drum, for instance, has created a ripple effect of misinformation that leads to damaged Hang, physical injury, and mental and emotional turbulence."[8]


I also see in the Wiki article that it mentions steelpans but not the African tongue drum, as the ECLIPSE description does.

Pretty! (Wish the wind didn't get in the way, though.

Pretty sounds but $500 for something you can make is pretty steep!

I really love these instuments. Been listening to them lately heaps.
They produce perfect harmonics unlike modern equal tuned music.

Would like to get one.

Daniel Waples is excellent, this clip has made me cry a bit sometimes,
it is so beautiful.

I like the duet with a violin.


So we have two instruments - the ECLIPSE - which is a combination of an African tongue drum and a Caribbean steelpan



and the hang drum, which is also based on a steelpan



I think they have slightly different sounds.

I think I like the hang drum better.

Hadn't seen the eclipse before your thread. Checked and most, but not all, of the tunings are ET.
So the hang produces purer harmonics and that may be the reason we both like it more

At first I read that as extraterrestrial!

Yes it does look like that. A few of my posts look funny in retrospect (cc).

ET is equal temperament or modern tuning which is all inharmonic or slightly "off". It gives them more variety but takes away the purity. Basically it messes up our energy systems, we run on pure harmonic frequencies.

I did a lot of reading about that for another thread, but I'm struggling to really understand it. I don't play a musical instrument; maybe if I did I would understand it.

Here's a new YouTube video:


Published on Oct 15, 2012 by davidbrealey

Cool & unique sounding instrument played beautifully with a haunting, organic tone & Trance-like flow by a talented percussionist in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

This instrument, the "Hang Drum" was invented in 2000 & looks like an upside-down steel drum. He is playing the "Ding" side, using the 8 field tone circle. In Bernese, Hang refers to the human hand, as in "hand drum".




In the Comments section someone said they cost about $2,000.
