We've been carrying Hardwood Music tongue drums (made by father-and-son team Michael & Joah Thiele in Arizona) for many years. This 9-key "New Bones" drum in African Paduk & Cherry wood came to us used and in need of some TLC, so we sent it to Hardwood Music. Their complete restoration process included removing the entire finish, gluing some cracks, adjusting & smoothing any warping, re-sanding/re-sealing, fine-tuning to pitch, refinishing and re-polishing. This drum truly looks and sounds like-new.
This particular model is no longer made, but is similar to the 9-key "Geo Bones" drum that we currently carry. It's in an E minor tuning (see photo for specific note layout).
One pair of rubber-tipped mallets will be included. These drums are designed to be played only with the mallets supplied by Hardwood Music, or with the hands. They must be played with a light touch to avoid damage to the wood and tuning.
