About GUDA drum MINI Overtone Dnipro
MINI Overtone Dnipro model is lightweight and compact. It is easy to take with you to nature, car or plane. 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 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.
I make this MINI Overtone model in the classic version with an engraved thin pattern on a brown background. Brown color is thin oxide film after heat treatment of the instrument. Also I can make an etched slightly voluminous pattern – thanks to the my own author etching technique. On the other hand MINI Overtone Dnipro could has powder coating in different colors: white, black, azure, violet and others.
I need about two weeks to manufacture your GUDA drum.
