O Danny Boy
With its large tonal range covering the entire treble clef, the Double Seconds’ main role in the ensemble is to play melodies and solos. It can be used to play songs in any key. Our Double Seconds are fashioned after Ellie Mannette’s traditional Double Seconds pattern. Its tonal range is one and a half chromatic octaves starting on middle C. This note layout is based on a whole tone scale, with every other note on the opposite drum. This separates half tones and helps with note isolation and clarity of tone. Because of this symmetry players can to learn to play chords and scales using shapes and patterns instead of memorizing scales or the notes that make each chord. The notes on the double drums are: C C# D Eb E F F# G G# A Bb B C C# D Eb E F.The Double Seconds steel tongue drums are a set of two drums played as one instrument. Each drum has a 12 inch diameter and weighs 9 pounds. We are currently offering a special of free shipping for this drum.
