The Nature's Instruments Whale Drum is a deeply resonant instrument that was originally developed from recycled propane tanks. When installed into the earth, each tongue resonates in the ground at different wavelengths. The whale drum is an ideal instrument for children with hearing impairments - we often find children beside and on top of the drum giggling as the ground vibrates around them. This is our most durable instrument and is made of heavy gauge, powder-coated steel that can be produced in almost any colour or design. Designs and colours that are not in stock will be custom ordered, please call for pricing.

  • Developmental Value

    Sensory Processing: Auditory, Tactile, Proprioceptive
    Motor: Eye-Hand Coordination, Balance, Coordination, Crossing at the Midline
    Cognitive: Problem-Solving, Focus, Memory, Attention, Comprehension
    Social/Emotional: Parallel, Joint or Cooperative Play, Turn-Taking, Self-Regulation
    Communication: Expressive and Receptive Language

    The whale drum provides auditory and tactile information at the same time, with a low booming sound and simultaneous vibration when hitting the tongue of the drum. It's great for children who seek more auditory input. The vibration is a nice option for children with hearing impairments as well as children who enjoy the tactile input. Children will be able to use one or two mallets or their hands, allowing crossing at the midline, motor planning opportunities, and proprioceptive input. One to four children can play parallel, jointly or cooperatively. Children can even be included by just sitting or standing beside the drum to feel the vibrations. The whale drum provides a great opportunity for children and adults to sing along with the drumming.
