The Hang Drum

All you folks packing up for Burning Man right now might want to check this out.

The Hang Drum was created by a couple of guys in Switzerland and has been around less than a decade. The sound is absolutely remarkable. Its like a ghost-like cross between a Jamaican steel drum and a UFO.

Apparently the two makers have taken a break from selling the drums in order to research further advancements. As a result, finding a used one at a reasonable price is incredibly tough. (There's one for sale right now on eBay for $6,500. Yikes.)

Here is a video showing the sound this thing makes. The performer is Dante Bucci, one of the most recognized players of the Hang Drum in the world:
