The Alien Drum (aka Hang Drum û trademarked by Pan Art) is a unique
tone based percussion instrument, which is almost impossible to come
by, since there is only one maker in the world and less than 1000
drums in circulation. The instrument has a soft, sorrowful,
melancholic tone to it and is a perfect companion for emotional or
ambient type of scores. The Tonehammer Alien Drum is unique in the
sense it was recorded at an average of 15 velocity layers and with 10
round-robin repetitions pr. layer/note, so you will never experience
any repetition in the articulation. We used custom microphone set-ups
to capture the delicate resonance both inside and outside the drum,
since the resonance defines the true sound of the drum. Additionally
we sampled multiple playing techniques with fingers, palm, slaps, hand
brushing and the back-side of the drum, which has the similar
properties to the Udu. Multiple versions of all multis allow for a
variety of ways to switch or fade between articulations while
