Description

The "Touch of Fire" finish combines a unique polishing process with heat-treated tongues to create a bold contrast between a shimmering silver body and deep colored tongues. A stunning and beautifully unique look in every drum.

Your drum will be precisely tuned to the scale that you pick. Not sure which scale to choose? Please visit the scale library at my website and listen. I recommend using headphones for the best experience hearing the drums.

Your drum comes with a laser cut stand and a set of mallets, the default mallet color is "Rose". If you would like a different color, please refer to my mallet listing for color choices:

and add a note to your order.

PLEASE NOTE : the pictures are posted as examples of the "Touch of Fire" finish. Each one is unique according to properties and character of the particular tank it's made from. Your drum will look similar, but will hold its own unique beauty.


I tune many of my drums to 444 and 423 hz, which are frequencies more in tune with our body's natural frequencies. You can choose which frequency you prefer.
432hz - more calming tone
440hz - best for playing with other instruments
444hz - bright and cheerful tone


At HandsOnFire, I don't recycle propane tanks, each drum is the Renaissance of a propane tank. Just like people, something wonderful happens when we step beyond the utility of everyday life and into an atmosphere where beauty is formed. That beauty is even more enchanting when it comes from a unique and unlikely source. I think these drums resonate with people because we are hard wired to appreciate beauty, to enjoy the pleasure of simple fascination in a realm of new possibilities.

That's why I love working with a repurposed material, because like these tanks, there is more inside all of us. I believe we all have a creative fire that needs to be expressed, needs a Renaissance. It's my sincere hope that the beauty and inspiration of these drums will bring you the simple pleasure of delighting in fascination, and ignite your creativity. From my hands to yours, let your creative fire find an expressive voice on one of these drums!

This drum is mesmerizing, both to play and to listen to. The day after I got it I took it to an open mic session and the entire audience was enthralled. This is my second purchase from Your Hands on Fire. I promise you, you will love any instrument you get from him.

This little stand holds my Chakra Overtone Drum perfectly. I can easily tuck it into the front pouch of the bag thay came with my COD and never worry about it being damaged. It's a perfect match for a minimalist setup.

Simple design that allows your tongue drum to float above the floor to allow the sound resonate out from above and below. I have a tank drum and a Rav Vast drum and works great for both. Like very much that it can be dismantled for travel. Thank you.
