Dave took it to the limit with a 17 note hand drum! Introducing the expanded TokTone Hand Drum, meticulously handcrafted by the artisan virtuoso, Dave Beery. This unique instrument, the only one of its kind worldwide, is constructed from high-quality ember stainless steel, reflecting Dave’s inspiration drawn from the captivating Balinese gamelans.

This dual-sided TokTone Hand Drum offers a rich array of 17 notes, divided between two scales for a diverse and dynamic auditory palette. The top shell features 9 notes (D, F, G, A, C, D, F, G, A) tuned to a D minor pentatonic scale, producing clear, soulful melodies that resonate deeply. The bottom shell introduces an additional 8 notes plus Gu (D, A, C, D, E, F, G, A, C), tuned to a D minor Celtic Minor scale, adding a hauntingly beautiful complexity to the instrument’s sound.

Spanning 21 inches in diameter, the drum shines in a warm, golden bronze hue—a visual testament to the enchanting sounds it produces. The ember stainless steel not only enhances the drum’s visual appeal but also ensures it is resistant to rust and corrosion, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor performances.

The TokTone Hand Drum harmonizes exceptionally well with other instruments, especially those like the Dii handpan, where it can complement or contrast the tonal qualities depending on the piece. Its dual-scale setup allows for versatile performances, capable of playing a lead melody or providing a rich harmonic background.

Maintenance is minimal; a simple wipe down keeps it in pristine condition. Whether for a professional percussionist, an avid musician, or a collector of rare instruments, the TokTone Hand Drum is an unparalleled addition to any collection, offering unmatched sound quality, aesthetic beauty, and the promise of durability. Experience the next level of musical expression with this revolutionary handcrafted instrument.
