Music of the Mountains
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.
These drums produce a warm and sweet tonal quality that is unique for their size. They feature five notes, most typically in the Key of D, which are (low to high) D, A, D, E, and F#. Players will be quick to find simple melodic and rhythmic patterns that are pleasing both to play and to hear.
Musical of the Mountains
The visual design of this instrument is an homage to the San Francisco Peaks above our hometown of Flagstaff, Arizona. Many prefer to display their Peaks drums on-end when they aren’t playing them, so as to showcase the mountain landscape with moon flying above.
