Merge[edit]

This should probably be merged somehow with slit gong which I was just working on a little this evening. Swsnow 07:05, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Create the page Tongue Drum[edit]

Why does "Tongue Drum" redirect here when there's no information here about tongue drums? A tongue drum is a tuned percussion instrument. It consists of a closed box, and slits are cut into one side to form "tongues" which resonate when struck, either by hand or with sticks or mallets. They aren't these tubes with a slot on one side. Here's an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsetll_5DYI 76.75.116.240 (talk) 00:38, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

  • You're right. "Tongue drum" should not redirect here. I'm going to make a crappy tentative page right now. Editors more experienced than me can work on improving the form and presentation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.197.54.27 (talk) 20:53, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
    • Organilogically speaking, "tongue drums" are "slit drums." I realize that the word "drum" implies "untuned," but most slit drums are tuned. What makes tongue drums a special case of slit drums is their ability to produce multiple pitches. But in all other respects, they are slit drums. Fine if you would like a separate page for them, but this point should be clear. Rikyu (talk) 00:11, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
