sugaipercussion.com  is an individual garage that manufactures and sells metal slit drums “Propanota”.

Over the past 15 years, I have personally produced over 1,500 slit drums. The big difference from other manufacturers is that it is not only a healing instrument, but also a more percussive instrument.

About custom orders


Fifty people tried to play Maurice Label’s “Bolero”.
Children in charge of melody practice for about a month.
Adults touched the instrument for the first time on the day and it was their first performance.

One of the performance ideas.

Performance while wrapped in “air packing sheet”. While the volume is reduced, the rustling sound echoes comfortably in your ears.

“People who want to enjoy a deep lingering sound”. Occasionally the sound will reverberate later. The volume is played modestly.

Improvisational sound play
Propanota, Propa de, and a toy pig.
The propanota uses a swimming cap mute to stop the lingering sound.

Sugai Percussion products are unique.
The tongue drum, which is characterized by a healing tone, can also produce a noisy and aggressive sound depending on the idea.

Relax as BGM without playing by yourself.
It’s a modest volume, but it makes the sound randomly.
