Owl at the full moon

Owl at the full moon

“A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren’t we like that wise old bird?”

Owl at the moon

“[The] owl symbolises the feminine, the moon and the night. They are the bird of magic and darkness, of prophecy and wisdom. The owl is linked to Athena. The owl is also referred to as the night eagle a messenger from the darkness and a guide through all the mysteries that it contains. They are night hunters and therefore have the ability to see what others may miss. The owl will give you the gift of seeing what is truly beneath the surface and not to be deceived by appearance.” (Ina Woolcott).

What’s your totem spirit animal? AM Drums are happy to make a special drum for you, whatever your beliefs. We often make them for Shamans, who appreciate the positive energy we put into them, as we make them by hand.

New ready-made steel tongue drum (AM Drum) – available now for quick delivery

A brand new ready-made steel tongue drum (AM Drum) is available to BUY NOW.  Pre-tuned and painted, it is ready to be packed up and sent to you ASAP, anywhere in the world.

Om Mani Padme Hum

The design combines one of our old favourites (a blue and gold mixture of abstract patterns, which merge and fade into each other) with the ‘Om Mani Padme Hum’ Buddhist mantra design.

Om = Universal Harmony

Mani = The Priceless Jewel (Cintâmani or Nyoihôshu)

Padme = Padma, the Blue/Purple Lotus

Hum = Waves of Jihi, or Mercy; Metta & Karuna

Tuning

This handpan is tuned to C Major 440hz, but can be quickly and easily fine tuned to 432hz upon request. We wanted to give you the maximum choice (also see TUNABLE drums below).

432hz

If you opt for 432hz, you’ll get C Major in 432hz, which is our Chakra scale. We we recommend this for meditation, relaxation and for grounding yourself, to become more in alignment with the universe.

Upgrade to TUNABLE

You can also opt to upgrade this steel tongue drum (AM Drum)  to TUNABLE.

TUNABLE means you can adjust the tuning yourself (easily and reversibly) to other scales and frequencies.  Each note can be changed individually and flexibly.

This means you can re-tune to C Major 432hz, which is our Chakra scale for meditation and grounding. You can also tune it to a wide variety of other scales in different, lower keys, and can also adjust it to 528hz (or A=444hz), which is the LOVE frequency for healing and DNA repair.
This gives you a wide/flexible range of scales/frequencies and everything in between. You can always go back to the original tuning again.

Online help

It is very easy to do, although we can give you online help and support to guide you, if you need it (via Facebook or email).

Ethical choice

Handmade hand painted with loving care - AM drums are THE ethical choice of steel tongue drums
Top ten reasons why AM Drums are THE most ethical choice of all steel tongue drums

When you choose to buy a steel tongue drum from AM Drums, you’re not just buying a musical instrument / handpan.

Here are the top ten reasons why you are also making an ethical choice, by investing in the following:

  1. Handmade products, made and painted with love and care, by the human touch only (no robots or automatic / digital machines involved). THE ethical choice.
  2. Recycled materials (including repurposed / upcycled metal, plus recycled paper and packaging)
  3. Fair trade, with no out-sourcing to factories or distant countries (no child / slave labour and no exploitation involved, in any part of the production / work chain)
  4. Local economies (benefitting people and communities)
  5. Small, independent businesses (giving power to individuals, not to massive corporations)
  6. Human values that put people first (a personal, honest approach)
  7. Diversity / choice and creativity / culture in an increasingly homogenised world (custom-made steel tongue drums with distinctive, individual character, rather than mass-produced handpans sold off the shelf)
  8. Spreading good vibrations ( made with pure love; offering alternative frequencies such as 432hz or 528hz help to heal the world, instead of the normal 440hz standard)
  9. Environmental sustainability (Ma Rustic’s low-cost lifestyle involves and promotes minimal materialism and consumerism)
  10. Community projects – AM Drums’ sideline projects include teaching about natural building techniques (below) for low-cost housing (follow AM Drums to read our next blog about Ma Rustic‘s sideline projects)
