my kids have both concentration and anxiety issues so I bought the steel drum as a way to stimulate their senses and keep them entertained. they just loved it, you should see how they react to the sounds and the happiness it brings them! it is a small, adorable size, very portable and great to take everywhere
This is a fun little instrument, and it's a bit tricky to play the highest note clearly. But I've been enjoying it and I hope to improve with practice. Note that although it's possible to play with fingertips, the mallets included make life MUCH easier.
My husband bought me this, it's very pretty, and it makes beautiful sounds. We both enjoy playing it. Nice quality, comes with nice drumsticks. Easy to put in your lap and to take it anywhere. Fairly easy to play. Nice buy! A+++
The quality is wonderful and the tunability is fantastic. If you have the money/credit, get it in all the colors, as they all look really good on person. I really do love them.
This sounds great and has a great price for the instrument that it is. It also brings a bag to take it everywhere, besides two small mallets. At this size it is not a ""hand"" drum. You have to use the mallets, so it's good that they offer them.
