Might need tuning
hunt kriimsilm, 18.09.2021
As I'm not a musician I can't comment on some things.

I was looking for a good, soft sounding instrument for relaxation and hobby playing. After experimenting with it and as good as the 432Hz may sound, unfortunately not all tongues or scales sound as good. Practically as a beginner it's difficult to use all of the drum tongues in one playing set however for wider choice it's nice to have 10 different sounding tongues.

Some tongues do sound very nice and I could just use 4 - 6 of them and good playing mood is guaranteed. But all the rest of the tongues are then kind of in a way. I personally don't like to use those tongues which sound, as one other reviewer has said, out of tune.

Overall it's feels like a quality instrument, but probably not for beginners. Now I'm looking at ones which have possibility to tune the sounds. Oh well, life is full of choices :)

solid product
Gurd, 17.06.2021
This drum is very solid, feels quite heavy and bag fits just around it, which give optimal protection. The tones are close to perfect, and for me it serves to relax, and that's a good product to use for that. the 2 sticks delivered work well on this drum.

Strange tuning
Honest John, 27.05.2021
The build quality is excellent but the instrument sounds out of tune to me. Maybe you are someone who likes strange tuning and will like this but for me it was just out of tune.

Überzeugend
Urklang, 09.02.2021
Aus meiner Sicht die beste Tongue Drum aus der Nataraj Serie. Der Klang ist voll und ausgewogen, alle Töne sind sauber gestimmt. Das Spielen mit den Händen erzielt dabei für mich das bessere Ergebnis. Die üblichen mitgelieferten Mallets sind brauchbar, aber es lohnt durchaus auch andere auszuprobieren. Die Filzmallets von RAV überzeugen mich z.B. mehr. Die Skala entspricht dem indischen Raga Bophali, was sehr beruhigende, meditative Klänge ermöglicht. Insgesamt wirkt das Instrument wertig, wozu sicher die mattschwarze Lackierung mit dem, durch silberne Farbsprengsel imitierten Sternenhimmel und die flache Form beiträgt, die im Gegensatz zu allen andern Nataraj Trommeln ohne den breiten Rand auskommt. Einzig die Tasche ist sehr knapp geschnitten, was das Einpacken zur Fummelei werden lässt.
Fazit: Ein tolles Instrument, optisch und klanglich ist das in dieser Preiskage sicher einzigartig. Sehr zu empfehlen.
