Description

The "Slate" finish is a variation of the Vintage that features dark and earthy concentric circles layered with shimmers of iridescent metal. A simple and natural look that also has an intriguing depth.

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.

PLEASE NOTE : the pictures are posted as examples of the "Slate" 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.

Your drum comes with a laser cut stand amd 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:

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!

    I got this in A Phrygian for my boyfriend for his birthday. It’s a beautiful finish, darker than the one pictured, but each is unique and beautiful! Jonathan helped me pick which scale to choose, and I was also surprised by how fast it arrived! My boyfriend loves it and it sounds great!

    This is a really well thought out stand for a 12” or 9” tongue drum. Compact when it needs to be, sturdy when it needs to be - and the notch to hold the mallets makes this a win win win. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

    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.

    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.
