Tongue Drum is a native iPhone/iPod Touch application modeled after a real tongue drum.

Tongue drums are one of the oldest instruments and have been part of African and other cultures for many thousands of years. Played with mallets or the hand, the tongue trum has a harmonically rich sound that can relax the mind and the soul.

The original tongue drum was hand-crafted by Steve Roberts at TongueDrum.com. It was meticulously sampled and turned into a convenient iPhone/iPod Touch application by Earsmack Music to allow the enthusiast to have the sound of the tongue drum with them at all times.

The application contains rubber ball, waxed cork and waxed dowel mallet samples along with an added bonus analog synthesized mallet by the Moog Voyager synthesizer.

Even beginners can easily create pleasant music on the tongue drum thanks to the E Pentatonic Major tuning. Other tunings are also available in the app for your enjoyment. Pick any tuning and any mallet then tap away to create wonderful polyphonic music on your very own tongue drum.

Love it and need the real deal? Contact steve@tonguedrum.com for information on ordering your very own tongue drum and exotic mallet set.

Great mobile version

I own a tongue drum that I bought from Steve (he makes excellent tongue drums) and although this isn't quite like playing the real thing ..... it is an excellent mobile version. I am very impressed with the quality and realism even down to the detail of playing to the edge of the drum for a different tone. What's really nice is that you can change tones and mallets. This will stay on my iPhone for sure!
