Genius Drums are melodic tongue drums handmade in Los Angeles by Jameson Hubbs from upcycled propane tanks. Each instrument is uniquely designed with geometric art and comes with a lifetime exchange policy so you can continue to grow your musical practice with different scales in the future.
Genius Drums are produced as part of a mission to bring more creativity in the world and every 7th one made is donated to nonprofit music therapy and art projects.
10 notes are arranged in each drum with resonant chords located next to each other to encourage intuitive expression for anyone playing. Genius Drums that have a pentagon cut on top will float in water and offer a beautiful form of underwater sound healing, whereas drums without the hole on top lack this feature, but provide more intricate designs.
All are tuned to A=432hz for deeper harmony, but standard 440hz concert pitch tuning is available for free upon request.
