How to Choose a Steel Tongue Drum

Choosing The Right Drum

The most important and simple step to choosing the right scale is to listen to them and decide what scales sound best to you.  If you are feeling torn between a few scales, it's important to know that you can't make a wrong choice!  

We recommend trying each scale for yourself on our virtual drum.  You can use the number pad on your keyboard to play the notes.  Change scales using the menu section and try a little bit of Chinese Big Bear or Hijaz North Indian Raga.  

As you play through the different scales, notice how they make you feel and narrow down your list to a few favorites that feel like they really resonate with you. 

This will help you find the best drum for you, but of course we are happy to learn more about you and make recommendations.
