440Hz – standard pitch for 99,9% of music and instruments of any kind. That’s the recommended choice for instrument.
432Hz – used mostly for sound healing and meditation. It’s a most suitable choice for those that want to play along with other instruments tuned to A=432Hz like singing bowls, crystal bowls, gongs and koshi bells etc. When played along with instruments in A=440Hz it will sound detuned and won’t fit them.
Q: I have never played on any instrument and have no idea about theory of music. Will I be able to play on LunaDrums?
Absolutely yes! No prior experience is necessary. All our instruments are very intuitive and simple. You will find a joy of playing from the very first moment.
Q: Which scale to choose?
That depends what you like. Listen to samples first. They are available here (SoundCloud) and here (YouTube). They have different moods and dynamic. If you are still doubting which one to choose, the best way is just writing to us. Tell us how and where you would like to use your instrument and what kind of mood you like. We will try to find something suitable for you.
Q: Does the instrument comes with guarantee?
Yes. We give 5 years guarantee for tuning. It does not apply to damages caused by user. If you decide to check if your drum is flying like an UFO and you throw it from 5th floor, well… That’s out of our responsibility 😉
Q: Will my instrument be securely packed before shipping?
Definitely yes. We pay extra attention when packing instruments. Very often they travel between continents and we prepare them very well for that journey.
Q; Should I play using my hands or mallets?
You can use both equally. Playing with mallets is easier and slightly louder. You might find them especially helpful at the beginning. They give clean sound, doesn’t matter how precise is your strike. Hand technique gives more possibilities for creating melodies and allows you play faster.
