I aint got no rhythm. I can prove it.

Okay here is a home made musical instrument that is easy to build and fun to play. The tongue drum is of Aztec origin. Tongues are cut in the top to give the drum it's tonal range.

The file includes the pattern for the tongues and the sound hole. The top is 17 1/2" x 5" x 1/2". At that point I just used simple butt joints to build a box around the top.

I used 3/8" dowel rods for the drum sticks with round wooden balls drilled and glued on the ends.

This drum turned out more percussive than I wanted. I was actually shooting for a more tonal sound. I'm trying to figure out how to make that happen.

This project is not going to be for everyone but if you are looking to experiment with sound you might enjoy this project. The design needs tweeking to get the sound better.

I have included a video as proof that I have no musical talent at all. I just thought you would want to hear the drum before you invested time in the project.

To hear other types of tongue drums do a YouTube search.
