Sun Drum


The Sun Drum has a clear and open sound that is less metallic than a traditional steel pan, thanks to its uniquely shaped tongues and thermally modified metal. We recorded mallet hits in open and muted playing styles.

The Sun Drum is a modified diatonic version of a traditional steel pan. It’s a member of the Hang Drum family and was handmade exclusively by Sun’diibaad in Prague.
The Sun Drum has a clear and open sound that is less metallic than a traditional steel pan. Its forward yet slightly hollow sound is created by uniquely shaped tongues and thermally modified metal scale.

It was played with a medium rubber mallet in open and muted configurations.
The muted playing style involves hand muting all tongues except for the one currently hit. This is useful for chromatic lines. In the open playing style, the tongues are allowed to resonate for a rich, colored sound. This is useful for notes at the end of musical phrases.
The natural range of the drum is F#2 – D#2. For this library, we stretched it for a playable range of C2 – C5 inclusive.

Sun Drum features:

  • Open and muted chromatic articulations
  • 6 round robins and up to 4 velocity layers
  • 540 stereo 24-bit WAV samples
  • 1 program for NI Kontakt 3+ with scripted performance controls and GUI
  • 3 programs for NI Kontakt 2
  • 3 programs for Logic EXS24
The total size of the library compressed is 535 MB.
All formats are included when you buy Sun Drum
