Tongue Drum

I saw my first tongue drum years ago in a little tourist store in Park City, Utah. I thought to myself “I could make that”.

It turns out that there’s more to it than just cutting some slits in a piece of wood, and i made a few mis-steps along the way. But for a first attempt, this came out well.

It is made from mahogany.




edit: I’ve now added a small video of it

  1. That had a surprisingly resonant tone, especially on the lower notes. I really liked the sound of it.

  2. I’m with Derek. That’s really cool.
