Hi Folks,

I make steel tongue drums called "Shiny Drums", i've expermimented many techniques to enhance the sound quality, and i continue to experiment.

Re: Shiny Drums video

Very nice! Sounds like your experiments are paying off    Great playing too.  :)

Are these made/upcycled from propane tanks?

Re: Shiny Drums video

Thanks !

No they are not made from propane tanks.
At the beginning of my experiments i've started with propane tanks but i've tried other steel ( covex tank end from industry ) to hear the differences.
Now i'm working with some 2.5 mm thickness industrial dished ends wich i like the sound, and i make special thermic treatment to them.(and other fabrication tricks...).
With my Shiny Drums , i can play fast with hands, but with propane tanks i can't play with the same technique (fast) because it's sounds too ringy/metallic for me...

(sorry for my poor english, i'm french...)

Yes, the quality of the sound with that speed of playing definitely stood out as impressive.  

Great work, and thanks for sharing.
