The Waterphone




I actually own one. It's an instrument often used in soundtracks and it is also used from scientists to call whales and dolphins underwater. I might record something on my instrument and post it here later. =0)

I can easily imagine the waterphone being used it soundtracks for horror movies or thrillers... but as with any instrument, it probably mostly depends on how you play it. It would be great to hear your sample!

I planned to get one of these...
Hang Drum


... until I found out how much they cost.
It's a beautiful instrument though!

Ok, I just recorded something with my cheap microphone. Enjoy! =0)



Sabina, here are some alternatives to the hang drum. Perhaps some of them come at a cheaper price.

Hapi Drum


Tongue Drum


Log Drum


Kalimba



Hope this helps a bit! =0)
