RAV VAST drum is an instrument in a ligue of its own. It has a unique sound quality due to the fact that up to 4-5 harmonics on the each tongue are tuned. On the central note there are 7 harmonics tuned. The complex shape of the tongues was calculated on the computer software in order to achieve the precise tuning of partials on each tongue and eliminate random harmonics. So it's not only a wonderful instrument but also a piece of advanced high technologies. The drum is loud enough to play outdoors. You can get your first sounds on it in a matter of minutes. The tongues are tuned to one scale which makes it very easy for beginners to start with.
