The Chorded 12-Key is our most popular instrument and one of our most musically versatile. This tuning features four chords: C, F, G, and A minor, or a I - IV - V - vi chord progression in the key of C. The instrument is well-suited to be played with hands or mallets, freestyle or to the tune of a favorite song. If it’s songs you’re after, you may know that the I - IV - V - vi chord progression is one of the most common in popular music of the last 50 or 60 years, across all genres.
* note - this particular Chorded 12 key drum is tuned in a progression on E minor, not our C Major tuning that is typical of our other Chorded 12 keys. It is hauntingly beautiful and the progression reminds one of the wonderful Sting song titled "Fragile".
