RAV Vast + RAV Vast 2

Steel Tongue Drum

There has hardly been an instrument developed in recent years that has come so close to the sound of a PANArt Hang® at this price level and yet still has such an individual sound and a unique way of playing. Of course, the two can hardly be compared, but the relationship is more than obvious.

The enchanting RAV Vast was developed in Perm (Russia) and is basically a metal slit drum in which the sounding reeds are traditionally worked from one sound surface. In this case the reed panels are cut with a laser in an aesthetically pleasing way in the upper shell of the RAV Vast and then fine-tuned by hand with a hammer. Due to the closed construction (the lower shell has no resonance hole) the sound floats directly upwards without missing the low pitches. All nine playing panels sound clean and have a remarkably long sustain, which allows lot of space between the individual notes. The panels are tuned to pure overtones, are easy to play and sound - from tender to loud, from percussive to floating - absolutely harmonic together and are partly rotated slightly in order to refine the tonal interplay of the harmonies and avoid unwanted resonances.

We made a selection of melodious scales for you, which instantly invite to play and inspire beginners and professionals, soloists and ensemble players.

In contrast to the RAV Vast (1), the RAV Vast 2 has an increased thickness of steel from 1.5 mm to 2 mm to optimize the loudness of the instrument. Furthermore, a cross-shaped steel stiffener is fitted inside the instrument for stabilization and a durable rubber strip protects the edge of the RAV drum from unwanted collisions.

Just let yourself be inspired by the harmonies in the videos below and hear for yourself which RAV Vast tuning appeals to you.

REVIEWS

The RAV Vast is ideally stored outside the optional bag to allow the material to dry completely after playing. Should rust nevertheless show up, the instrument can simply be wiped with 99.9% alcohol and then rubbed with a protective oil.

Our Ballistol oil, which is made of natural basic substances, is recommended for maintenance, depending on the intensity of play once or twice a month.
