The Ruby Red Domina arrived yesterday and we LOVE it!! Sounds great unplugged and when I connected it to my Spark Mini amp, it’s amazing! Once again, thank you for the quick shipping! The red color is just perfect. It’s nice and dark, and comes off as a maroon/wine color as we hoped. It’s perfect!! Can’t wait to try some tunings.
The Lunabell and Domina were high quality and sound great! Both were shipped promptly and arrived as promised. Highly recommend this company and their products.
This Idiopan is super cool and small enough to bring it with you. The color is fabulous and the sound seems to be amazing!

Such deep vibrations! Very easy to tune and apply magnets, and has such a clear and deep tone, unlike anything else i have played! Hands down the best tunable tongue drum everIdiopan.com2 years agoHi John, thank you for the great review! We think its pretty awesome too.

This is such a beautiful instrument that really must be played to fully appreciate. The videos that I listened to prior to purchase do not fully showcase the ethereal experience of actually playing it. I mirror many of the comments that the reviewer Daniel shared (and he articulated it so much better than I could have). What I'd love to add is that I very much appreciate the construction and quality of the Dual Tone. Separately, I purchased the pickup and enjoy the versatility of incorporating my signal processors into the experience. And the customer service by Idiopan has been excellent (this is my second Idiopan).Idiopan.com3 years agoHi Wendy, thank you for the wonderful review! We are so happy you are enjoying your Dual Tone and will have years of enjoyment. We love to make our customers Happy... Sincerely, Sheila and the whole Idiopan Team

Playing this instrument is nothing short of euphoric. It is unlike ANYTHING I've ever heard. The vibrations are incredibly powerful, and can be felt throughout your entire body. Each note is so bright and pure, and resonates flawlessly and independently with very little effort. The dual tongues provide each note with its very own bass. When the inner tongue is hit, the outer one very gently resonates behind it giving it a beautiful fullness. When the outer tongue is hit, it produces a very deep and strong vibration. They ring harmoniously together.
The dual tongues add a dynamic I've never seen on other steel tongue drums(or any instrument period), and has such a pleasant sound. I see unlimited possibilities with meditation/healing. If you're sensitive to energies, this instrument may be a life changing experience for you, I'm not kidding. I recommend using the mallets if you're looking to produce pure and strong resonating vibrations. The tunability is mind blowing, and Im excited to explore the calming effects different frequencies have on my body. This drum is in a genre of its own.
