About GUDA drum MINI Overton
This model is designed specifically for travel. It’s easy to take it with you to nature, in a car or plane. MINI Overton is lightweight and compact. However, it has a very rich and full-bodied sound. The instrument consists from two hemispheres made from 1,5 mm steel. Eight oval-shaped tongues are located at the upper hemisphere. The lower hemisphere has no holes and serves as the amplifier of the resonance.
My innovation consists in the method of tuning. Manipulation and forging of the tongue causes very intresting effect – one tongue produces 2 notes instead of one: main tone+overtone, which is commonly tuned +1 octave. This is effect makes sound more volumetric and deep.
To decorate the instrument, I developed a new technology for etching stainless steel. This technique has its own peculiarities: it is very difficult to achieve the same result on different instruments. The same design may be slightly different from the photo, be lighter or darker, and also have a slightly different texture.
The composition of the picture and the character of the line remain unchanged!!!
