Saw that yesterday, thought it was fantastic. While they are calling it a space dome it reminds me of the south sea islanders who made the original version out of metal barrels left behind by GI's during WW2...various notes were made by hammering indentations in the metal with a hammer, then played by striking the indentations with a stick much like a drum stick. It was something you might see on the Ed Sullivan Show of Shows TV program

I saw something similar to that a couple of years ago. That instrument has another name, IIRC.

yup

referred to as a "Pan" "Hang" or "Slap Drum"
it's a neat instrument that looks like 2 Woks
welded together... but it'snot


HAN SOLO wink


It's actually a precision instrument developed
and manufacture(D) in Switzerland (past tense)
because for WHATEVER Reason, the company stopped
making them, therefore they're in such limited
supply that they've become astronomically expensive
since the typical initial reaction upon hearing
that sound is "I WANT ONE!!!" cry

For the few that were lucky enough to scarf
them up when they did, it's been a constant
discovery of sounds that vary with different
techniques, including stroking, tapping, and
banging with everything from the fingertips,
palms to elbows.


LUCKILY "There's An App 4 That" wink

What I was thinking of is called a steal drum, what I remember are the hand made ones, checking the net you can actually buy a ready to use one, great sounding thing.
