An instrument of this complexity is only limited by one’s imagination […] It’s a highly intuitive instrument that will no doubt earn itself legions of fans - and with highly respected endorsers around the world (including Pete Lockett), its reputation is spreading fast. Whether you play it un-amplified as a meditative cure to life’s pressures or push the boundaries with cutting-edge FX treatments, either on its own or as part of your set-up, Garrahand’s gdrum will challenge preconceptions whilst being superb fun too.

This compact and portable instrument combines a clever design and unique sound for percussionist and music therapist alike. [...] A short slap or flick with the fingertips produces the purest of notes, as with a hand drum.

What is the gdrum (formerly Garrahand)?

A melodic, electro-acoustic percussion instrument that you can intuitively play with your hands.

Thanks to its proprietary tuning system and its 7 tongues (14 combining 2 drums) you can set up the Garrahand to virtually any scale and perform over any style of music.

Utilized by musicians performing with mega-stars like Sting, Shakira, Björk, and Peter Gabrielmore than 5000 units have been sold since 2007.
