RAV Drum (aka RAV Vast) is a revolutionary new instrument that fuses the concepts behind handpans (hang drums) and tongue drums (traditionally made of wood). Perfectly cut steel tongues vibrate harmoniously together to create an ethereal sound perfect for meditation, relaxation, and other mystical music experiences.
Made by Andrey Remyannikov in Russia, the RAV Drum is one of our favorite instruments to play. Take one home and enjoy it for life!
