8 notes Spacedrum® is a C major pentatonic scale melodic percussion in metal, also called Handpan or Pantam. The only acoustic musical instrument invented during the XXI° century!
With its small diameter and fluid shape, the 8 notes Spacedrum is very easy to handle and was designed to be suitable for most people (including children).
Thanks to a long research & development work in partnership with an engineering high school we’re happy to release the 4th generation Spacedrum®, made out of a special stainless alloy. The properties of this special alloy are particularly adapted for the outdoor playing: totally rustproof, even in the extrem climates (see shores, tropics...), hard enough to keep the tuning for years (in normal conditions of use). Added to that, the Spacedrum® Evolution (4th gen) develops more sustain and more sound volume while respecting the Spacedrum® original sound.
This instrument is fragile and needs to be protected when it's not played. Our bags are specially designed for a good protection of the Spacedrum®.
The diatonic and pentatonic scales (major and minor) are often used in a pedagogical situations (music academies, schools, art therapy, early-learning activities...). They also suit to any type of artistic project.
You can play alone, or with someone else, with the instrument on your knees or on a stand. You can even turn it over and play with the sound-hole in a "Udu style".
The Spacedrum® can be rubbed with the palm, beaten with sticks (specially designed) or simply touched by your fingers. It gives you a total freedom in terms of playing technique.
