VibeDrums Feel The Good Vibes
Great for those on the go. Our unique super slim design and lightweight make this the most portable of all Steel Tongue Drums of this size. Fits easily into a handbag, knapsack or rucksack. You can take it virtually anywhere. Perfect for travelling, hiking and all activities and due to our 13 gauge Stainless Steel there is no stress if the drum is exposed to the elements and the sound purity and quality of the drum is second to none. So yes with a Mini-Vibe Stainless Steel Tongue Drum from Vibedrums you CAN have your cake and eat it too.
*8 Notes - 1 Bass / 1 Mid-range and 6 High Notes
*13 Gauge Stainless Steel: On the playing heads which improves resonance, tuning longevity and overall durability over the thinner 14 gauge used to make other drums of this type and no rust to worry about or traces of lead in the steel
*Painting: The drum is double “Powder Coated” with a new exotic color that Sparkles and changes with the light. This 2 coat system makes the drum much more durable & scratch resistant than standard powder coats.
*Resonance: The Parabolic resonance Chamber combined with our high quaiity 13 gauge steel creates a drum with optimal resonance for its size.
*Harmonics: The playing tabs are perfectly spaced for optimum playability and harmonics between the other notes
Versatile: Can be used for playing, meditation as well as Therapeutic Treatments.
Lightweight, for ease in transportation, without loss of sound

Octagonal notes to maximise the "sweet spot"
As I have learned there is Steel and there is Steel This is why I have chosen to use AISI certified High Grade Steel In addition instead of using the less expensive thin 14 gauge steel I use the thicker 13 gauge which increases resonance, increases the durability and the drum stays in tune longer.
We have switched from an Automotive Spray Paint to a Powder-Coat Paint mostly because powder-coat does not contain any VOC's (volatile organic compounds) in it so it is more environmentally friendly. Plus there are no traces of lead in our paint.
We discovered a very unique, high quality powder that is applied in 2 steps with two separate powders that react with each other when combined and produces a 3H to 4H scratch resistance rating. This does not mean that you cannot scratch them but it does make them more scratch resistant than most other powders.
Shape: We chose a Octagonal shape (patent pending) for our notes, even though it is much more costly to cut, for three basic reasons. The first is because in our opinion they just look better than the big rectangles or 2 joined curved lines. The second is it focuses your attention on the "Sweet Spot" of the note which is dead center. And Third because the Octagonal shape allows us to cut 9 notes into the drum while still allowing a large space between the notes which helps to reduce harmonic distortion and interference with the other notes.
Spacing: The spacing of the notes is important. If you have a lot of notes jammed in very close to each other when you strike one note it will partially activate the notes next to it, which causes a certain amount of harmonic distortion and interference. Our unique Octagonal shape allows us to fit in 8 notes while still allowing plenty of space horizontally and vertically between them.
