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.
ー Three features of propanota ー
A tone that gently wraps around
You can enjoy the finest sound just by gently touching it. Playing is very easy and does not require any musical knowledge or hard practice to bring out good sounds.
Wide variety of performances
“Healing tone” is a matter of course.
Propanota is a unique instrument not only as a “healing” but also as a “percussion instrument”.
You can enjoy a completely different type of sound.
Great as a gift
As emotional education for small children. Custom support according to the user’s wishes. It is also popular as the only “gift of sound” in the world.
ー How to buy ー
You can purchase from stock or from individual orders.
There are many individual requests for colors and scales, and as a result, the ratio of individual orders (custom orders) is high.
There are the following 3 types in the product list
◎In-stock items that can be shipped immediately
◎Items related to 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.
