Meet the Team
Manastone Drums was founded by master drum craftsman Noah Pulver in 2012. Since then Noah has personally built and tuned over 1,000 steel tongue drums, and has clocked an enormous amount of experience crafting high quality instruments. Noah has a bachelors degree in music and is a multi-instrumentalist including "anything with strings", as in the guitar, mandolin, dobro, and anything else with strings.
Before starting Manastone, Noah apprenticed for two years under one of the original tongue drum makers, Kaizen.
Here we have a rare photo of Noah and captured by his grinning partner Laura.

In 2020, Noah was joined by fellow musician and businessman Nicholas Penn, to help bring Manastone to the wider world. Nicholas has been writing and performing his own music for over 15 years. Originally finding inspiration in the folk/rock/singer-songwriter world, Nicholas became a staple in the music community of Kentucky before moving to Colorado in 2020.
In 2017 Nicholas shifted to writing and performing meditative guitar music for yoga classes, beginning a new interest in sound healing and using his music to bring peace and calm to the world. Nicholas has been a huge fan of steel tongue drums and handpans for a long time, so when the opportunity to join Manastone arose, it was a no brainer. Nicholas moved to Crestone, Colorado where Manastone is based in May of 2020.
This video is a live recording of an original composition by Nicholas, written on the E Melog 9-Note Manastone.
