This 8-key vermilion box tongue drum is based on the traditional African slit drum, and has a warm, rounded, soft, almost dreamy tone.

It's generally played with soft rubber mallets, although Tonehammer also played it with brushes wood sticks for effects and added rhythmic potential. Both versions are included: a wealth of new up-close and dry articulations, along with the original wet content, naturally captured in a large, bright tile and stone hall.

The dry version also includes a new feature. While working with this instrument, Tonehammer noticed that playing the tongues closer to their base produced a thinner, crisper sound, while striking at the tip produced a fuzzier, deeper, muddy tone. These new dry patches are designed to allow mallet position cross-fading or switching, allowing for a greater playability.

This new complete Whaledrum library now features 3158 Samples, 53 instrument patches, custom ambient synth pads and a bonus epic reverb impulses set.
