Children absolutely love these steel "Tongue Drums" (also called Hank Drums, Tank Drums, or Cylinder Drums). They produce resonant, bongy sounds that vibrate up and through a child's body.

The 12" round drum is 14" high and produces different tones from the 6 tongues cut into the top of the drum.

Each drum is uniquely finished with a deep green base with lighter overtones that give it depth, all of which are exterior colors chosen to blend in with natural settings. We then clear coat the surface for long-lasting exterior exposure and use.

This version has wooden feet so it’s portable, and can be carried anywhere on the Natural Playground, or brought inside!

These drums are ready to play "out of the box."

No installation instructions needed, but we also make these with a metal post for embedding into the ground for a permanent installation. (see the other listing in the store).

A note about why drums are so very important on your playground:

Research indicates that drumming induces relaxation by enhancing theta-wave production and brain-wave synchronization.

Drumming produces pleasurable experiences, enhanced awareness of preconscious dynamics, release of emotional trauma, and reintegration of self.

Drumming alleviates self-centeredness, isolation, and alienation, creating a sense of connectedness with self and others.

Drumming provides a secular approach to accessing a higher power...

Hank Drums are to be played with hands, fingers, and other soft objects(in other words, not sticks, pebbles, stones, rocks, boards, heavy mallets). Otherwise, the clearcoat cover and underlying paint may chip, which will then cause the metal drum to rust! Also, heavy beating on the drum tongues with a fist or other large/heavy objects may cause the tongues to bend or break. Neither of these is covered by the warranty!
