Percussion sounds are widely used in the ancient religions for thousands of years in Asia, Africa and America. The golden tongue drum is a helpful meditation tool which has become popular with spiritualists for its ease of use. It is so-called because of its golden colour and the burnished flower of life.  The flower's petals are similar in shape to a tongue. The gold colour represents success and triumph. If you want to focus better in your meditation, the golden tongue drum is a helpful addition to your meditation space. 

Where did it come from?

Wooden log drums were used by Aztecs, while the African Slit Drum was also used for spiritual purposes. Oriental religions have also used the wooden bell or wooden fish for thousands of years. 

The golden tongue drum was invented by Dennis Hyena, making the first one from an old propane tank in 2007.  The first design was called the Hank drum.  He later improved the design to the present form. It has since become a popular meditation aid for people all over the world. 

How hard is it to play?

The golden tongue drum does not require special playing skills. it can be played by anyone. You can play it intuitively without a musical background.  There is no set way of playing the drum. You just have to start hitting it with the mallets that come with it. There is no right or wrong way of playing. It has become popular because of this ease of use. 

You can also use your hands to play the golden tongue drum but it takes some time to get used to.  Your hands also need to toughen up to produce the same quality of sound as the mallets. Most people prefer playing with the mallets for proper vibrations. Its music is relaxing and calming, and it quickly gets a person in a meditative stance.
