Do you want to learn how to set up a tongue drum ?
This musical instrument is becoming increasingly popular, and for good reason! A tongue drum can be played in a variety of ways, making it a great option for musicians of all skill levels. In this blog post, we will discuss the basics of tongue drum assembly and give you some tips for getting your instrument set up correctly.
Before we get started, let's quickly go over what a tongue drum is. A tongue drum is a percussion instrument that consists of a round, shallow frame with one or more tongues (or strips of material) stretched across the top. The tongue(s) are struck with sticks or mallets to produce sound.
Now that you know a little bit about tongue drums, let's discuss how to set one up correctly. The first step is to find a flat surface on which to place your tongue drum. Once you have found a suitable location, place the tongue drum in the center of the surface and make sure that it is level.
Next, take a look at the tongue(s) on your tongue drum. There should be two tongue screws located at the base of each tongue. These screws are used to adjust the tension of the tongue, so make sure that they are tight enough that the tongue cannot move around but not so tight that the tongue is stretched too tightly.
Now, it's time to tune your tongue drum. To do this, you will need to adjust the tongue screws until the desired pitch is achieved. Once you have tuned your instrument, you are ready to start playing!
