"The drawing of sound from wood is among the oldest and most primal manifestations of human communication and musical expression."
- Michael Thiele, Founder of Hardwood Music

We have had the drum for a week and each person who has discovered it for the first time has smiled ear to ear. This is a handmade musical instrument that makes music almost by itself. The chording makes even a rhythmically challenged two year old capable of making beautiful noise.

The workmanship is first rate, and it will be a showpiece when I haul it out in public. And the sound that comes out of it is really just unbelievable. It's something that you can't really appreciate from hearing on a website, you need to be holding one of these beauties in your hands.
Karen, USA | Chorded 12-Key
Words are inadequate to describe what happens when I play. The sounds gently wash over me like water ebbing and flowing over polished stones. I have never felt so relaxed and focused at the same time in my life. It's so gentle. And I'm just exploring the note combinations.
