We often receive special requests for customized instruments with specific scales or engravings. Whatever your needs are, we will look into each request and let you know if that can be made or not, so feel free to ask us!
If you want a specific scale we will ask you to be very accurate in your request, then we will study it. First you must clarifiy on which Spacedrum line you want it (Evolution or Nitro). Then we will figure out the most appropriate choice for your instrument. That depends on the number of notes and the layout possibilities. Please, think well about your custom scale before asking for a study, that will help us to be more efficient.
The lowest note of a custom scale can be a B2 (Si2) and the highest note can be a D5 (Ré5). If we have to tune deep bass tones, then the Spacedrum diameter should be 23.9 in (60 cm – the large size) for an 8 notes scale.
The making process of a custom Spacedrum is different from our usual process, that’s why these instruments are more expensive than the “regular” tunings we offer.
For laser engravings on Handpan or Steel tongue drum, constraints also sometimes limit the range of possibilities. The materials, the area to be engraved, the size of the engraving... must be well analyzed to produce quality work.
