What is this magical device and where can I get one? Seems similar to a steel drum, but not.

Hang drum is an awesome instrument. I have a hang drum app, of course not nearly as cool as the instrument itself but still, gives you that little tingle.
Every hang drum is manufactured by hand in Switzerland and costs a fortune. Still the only people I ever saw playing them are these people with dreads that seem to have spent all their hard earned cash on this drum.... Awesome vid Jim! Thanks for sharing.
I wasn't aware performing sex on yourself was a crime...
I also think as a Mixer, handling multiple sources being mixed to one Comp track is very similar to handling as a Drummer, multiple ostinatos on different limbs, all coming together to make one killer rhythm over which the other musicians "paint".
There's this huge multitasking thing you're doing, all the while trying to incorporate it into this other even bigger thing.
I want a hang drum. I have a Cajon that is a blast. That thing is cool...
As well as any other instrument player, because it's mostly about memory. I've heard that anybody that studies foreign languages can easily learn music notes, which has something to do with remembering small things.
percussion bad assery at its finest
Drummer here as well. Went to Berklee for performance and production/engineering. Played for years in different fusion and rock bands including doing some stuff with Wayne Krantz and bassist Will Lee and a lot of other very hip players. Always had a studio and started doing post which led to what I do now.
Good drummers. Wild decay in that room on whatever the mic was used.
DUMS! (as I call them) Been playing for about 9 years, been in a couple bands. Punk, heavy metal and rock. Got to play more since moving out to California (didn't do it as much in Chicago for some reason. It's a part of me just like sound is. Some of my favorite drummers growing up were including Lars Ulrich, John and Bonham. Of course when I really recall wanting to play was when I was watching Ringo Starr in "Help!". But now the real reason I wanted to contribute to this post....
TC, are you obsessed with me? Maybe I just read your post wrong. I should have nothing to do with you playing or enjoying the drums. Also, "the base got deeper"? Not sure WTF that means. Anyway.... Looks like a nice set you own. What make? Looks like DW's.
Since you asked, I don't play to music. Never have really. Maybe I'll give it a try someday. I usually just play for 15 to 30 minutes and I'm happy. When my oldest son is around we will jam together which is the most fun. I'd say most of the time I come up with a beat to fit a song I'm working on and then record it into ProTools and then cut and paste it into a performance to hang the rest of the song on. That is my hobby these days.
Just some friendly advise, don't worry about CrewC and just drum and have fun.
Thought I'd join in on the drum circle. I've got a birch Pacific 4 piece kit that has treated me well. Sadly it lives at my mom's house now as it's not feasible to have in my apartment, although I've been considering getting a cheap electronic kit to keep up my chops.
Combining sound and drumming, here's a commercial I worked on in college. Not only was I in front of the camera, I also ran playback and recorded sound (but none of the dialogue made the edit.)
That's better than half the spots I work on. BTW, you have more hair than half of all our members put together Patrick. We'll see how much hair is left after 40 years of wearing headphones.;~)
Haha thanks Crew. Having so much hair can be annoying sometimes when wearing headphones but I just can't bring myself to cut it. Hopefully I'll be able to keep a little bit of it as I age.
My utility, Marcus Petruska is one of the best drummers around. I think he is the player on the first Zac Brown record among other great recordings. He just recently got off a several year stretch with a popular country singer named Corey Smith. He is amazing to watch and has timing like a Denecke box. I used to play with him in a group know as Big Atomic. Rumor has it a new record might be in the works.
