Tongue drums are melodic percussion instruments with notes that are shaped by tongue-like cuts in the shell. These drums originated in indigenous cultures, in Africa and South America, utilizing wood as the base. Modern models are now cut from steel and other metals. Each brand of tongue drum has its own unique sound and can be played using either your hands or mallets.
All Tone, No Tank™
The very first Idiopan was created by musician Bret Hutchinson in 2010. Inspired by Dennis Havlena’s tank drum, Bret sought to craft a tunable percussion instrument he could incorporate into his musical projects that would produce a pure, clear tone with no “tankiness”.
After much experimentation, Bret developed the first and only steel tongue drum capable of tuning to hundreds of scales with its unique magnet tuning system — providing warm, rich, pure tones ideal for harmonizing with any instrument.
Bret later teamed up with Max Kundrat of EnSoul Music Designs to develop a full line of high-quality, tunable steel tongue drums.

Idiopan steel tongue drums can be tuned to suit your mood. Relax and meditate to the soothing tones in A=432 Hz or energize yourself with the uplifting sounds of bright and colorful major scales in A=440 Hz.
All tongues can be tuned to several pitches, allowing you to easily tune your Idiopan steel tongue drum to hundreds of scales — no tools necessary.
Included with all Idiopan tunable steel tongue drums are a pair of mallets, a standard set of preinstalled tuning magnets, and a silicone display ring.
