Hapi Drums is a set of four steel tongue drums crafted by legendary instrument makers Grahm Doe & Tricia Kelly at their workshop in the Sierra Mountain foothills of Oakhurst, CA.
Steel tongue instruments are known for a smooth fundamental tone wrapped in a haze of complex harmonics and a long, mellow sustain. Hapi Drum is one of the oldest and highest quality steel tongue drum makers in the world, with unique body designs and tuning options and clear, rich notes that cut cleanly through clusters of carefully-balanced lush, swirling overtones.
