• 9 Notes

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.

Dear Nadishana, I purchased the RAV VAST A Integral and G Pygmy. Everything went really well with shipping - the instruments arrived in perfect condition and I am really happy with them! I already have 2 original Swiss Panart Hangs in my collection, but the RAV VAST is one of the best instruments I have ever played! The sound is very colourful and lifts my spirit to a new dimension, nothing I have experienced so far.Thank you a lot, Nadishana for the great service and Andrej Remjannikov for the instrument!

The RAV is really incredible! It's not only a music instrument with an amazing sound, it's an outstanding beautiful piece of art! And it's really sounding like in the videos! There are no additional effects, as far as I can tell. Thanks so much to you Nadishana, for that you make it possible that the RAV is available here in Germany. Keep sharing the mystical sounds! Ingo
