Drummer Cafe


Serving drummers and percussionists since 1996.

DingdrumA steel hand drum, made from a propane tank, with eight tabs on the face of the drum — each of which produces a different tone. Dingdrums are available in a variety of five and six-note melodic scales, each with its own distinct character. This drum is ideal for percussionists looking for a simple way to get some melody into their art without the time-consuming process of learning a new instrument. Easy to play with a unique, soothing and hypnotic tone.

Dingdrums are designed to be intuitive to play and the notes sounded by the eight tabs make it a perfect instrument for improvisation.

In this video presentation, recorded by Drummer Cafe founder/owner, Bart Elliott, during the 2011 Summer NAMM Show in Nashville, TN, Dingdrum creator, Joel Bellinson jams on some new melodies.
