Material Selection

By nature, all of our instruments are one of a kind and feature exotic hardwoods, hand-picked for visual beauty and acoustic excellence. We find that each combination of wood color and figure gives the instruments their own distinctive character.

Tunings

Our standard Chorded 12-Key tuning features a “One, Four, Five, minor-Six” chord progression in the given key. If it’s songs you’re after, you may know that this chord progression is one of the most common in popular music of the last 50 or 60 years, across all genres.

Dial of Conn Strobotuner

Musical Versatility

The Chorded 12-Key is our most popular instrument, attracting the ears of professional and amateur musicians alike. This drum is well-suited to be played with hands or mallets, freestyle or to the tune of a favorite song. The size of the sound chamber enables the Chorded 12-Key to project its voice to fill a room with rich and vibrant tone.
