this is for creating a harmonic drum!
In 2018 the company begins the production of The Handpan following the classic artisan tradition and makes handpans at 9 and 12 notes, with a 440Hz tuning or, on demand, at 432Hz. Make 8, 9- to 12-note, and on-demand models in both the number of notes and the scale.
The total craftsmanship in creating them, the passion and the commitment to do things, makes them unique, and gives them that specific sonority that distinguishes them. It is not easy to describe on paper the beautiful Rammerdrum,the hand-crafted steel harmonic drums that surprise for the color of the sound, for its delicate strength and for the value of the finish. These instruments, which are born in the Neapolitan laboratory of Marco Tirino, resemble a drawing and the levity of a poem. The stamp with which they express themselves is not far from that of the steel drum: with which, however, they constitute an important evolution, both stylistically and from an exquisitely musical point of view.
Kalimba is an ancient African percussion instrument, consisting of a variable number of wooden or metal slats, originally applied to a box or pumpkin that act as a sounding board.
The kalimba rammerdrum is entirely made of stainless steel, with the slats applied to a metal dome, the sounding board.
Rhythm is the soul of life. The whole universe revolves around the rhythm. Everything and every human action revolves around the rhythm.
The frequency of the reference note for the tuning of musical instruments, in Italy, is established by a law, the No. 170 of 1989, which sets the normalization of the basic intonation of musical instruments. This normalization established that the reference sound for the basic intonation of musical instruments was the note LA3, the height of which was to match the frequency of 440 Hz, measured at room temperature of 20 degrees centigrade.
There is a movement of opinion close to the eastern disciplines that prefers the tuning of the LA3 to 432 Hz, which stimulates the chakra of the heart, of feeling. Frequency that is in harmony with that of the earth and the body, which balances the sound sensations and makes the body and soul vibrate at the same time.
