The only steel tongue drum to rival the sound of a handpan

Rav Vast official partner
  • 9 Notes
The RAV Vast has a large Ding as well as 8 tongues in a circle. The Ding has up to SEVEN tuned tones. Tongues in the circle each have 4-5 tuned tones. That is why the RAV Vast has the greatest range and most harmonious sound among all similar drums in the world.

  • 9 Scales
Now we have available 9 different tunings. All of the tones in one tuning are selected in such a way that it is impossible to make a mistake. RAV Vast tongues are extremely sensitive and getting started takes minutes. The loudness of a RAV Vast is the same as any handpan and is easily loud enough to play in the open air.

Its a magical instrument. A singing bowl, a bell that can be played. The vibration puts me in a trance. I cant wait to Excel. This drum stands head to head with a hang drum! It is well-made and the seller is awesome. Now can you ask for more?

These things sound better in person than in the videos! Love our new Rav Vast, it sounds incredible!... I am in a wheelchair and paralyzed from the chest down, I'm a c-6 quadriplegic, meaning all 4 limbs are affected to some extent by my paralysis. This drum is an amazing instrument for someone like myself, very thankful for this gorgeous sounding and looking, and easy to play instrument!

A cut above other tongue drums, 100% satisfied! The sound is indescribable, warm and rich, with perfectly intonated overtones. No hint of "tanky" sounds in this drum. Experience overall was positive, shipping took about 9 weeks. I wish I had been contacted when it shipped so I could track the package. As it was, I was only notified after the first delivery failed. The only negative I can find is that the rubber binding on the side is not super strongly attached. I was sliding the drum into the case it came in, and the binding separated from the drum right at the seam, I could see some of the glue was still tacky inside the ring. I was able to get it back on, but I was surprised it came away so easily. I am now extra careful when taking the drum in and out of the case. Already thinking about the next scale I want!

Yes! Soooooo worth the wait! This is a work of art that makes beautiful music. I am so astonished by the workmanship and the blue grey finish. It is absolutely stunning. I look forward to years of music on this magnificent vessel. I ordered the bag, which is sturdy and well crafted. Highly recommended if you plan to travel out & about to play your drum. I look like a turtle because I just under 5ft tall, but I'm sure average folk will carry it off better. The weight it distributed well across your back, and it has a section on the bag that looks like its meant to protect your drum on wet surfaces. Glad I invested in the bag, My mailman asked if I ordered a spaceship! I was so happy my spaceship finally arrived. Thank you all at Rav Vast. Bless you all for this amazing instrument.
