How to play it?

It’s easy to play the UFO drum – it’s tuned so that every combination of the pedals sound together harmoniously (pentatonic scale). From the first touch, you will intuitively play delightful music. You should just relax, follow the rhythm flow and the music will come from you, filling a space with mystical sounds and healing vibrations. It is also a perfect instrument for meditation and sound healing.

Technique

UFO drum can be played with hands or with sticks. Place it on your lap, or on some soft surface to keep sound hole at the bottom open. The hit must be sharp, but not too strong. After a short contact with the surface of the instrument finger should “bounce up” like a tennis ball. The shorter is the time of contact with the surface – the longer the sound becomes and the overtones get richer. For beginners, the best way to start is to use a forefinger. Hit the surface of the drum with your fingertips, the place which normally used for the fingerprint. After a little practice, the notes played with fingers will become as loud and clear as if you are using steel tongue drum soft sticks.

User maintenance is simple, just wipe it sometimes inside and out with a natural oil to avoid corrosion. Protect from bumps and scratches. And enjoy it!
