Find Your Inner Peace
The DRUME Hand is a percussion instrument in the idiophone family. It is a very melodic percussion instrument and highly appreciated for its relaxing sounds and ease of playing, which does not require any particular technique. Anyone without practice can easily pick one up and start playing, with the number of slats or "tongues" equal to the number of notes it can produce. You can either use mallets or your own hands to produce sound.
