We are super stoked to partner up with Genius Drums, steel tongue drums handmade by Jamesun Hubbs in Los Angeles, California. Each instrument is painted with intricate designs to channel deeper expression with players and create a synesthetic experience that merges visual art with intuitive expression. A lifelong musician, Jamesun has been making Genius Drums for nearly 4 years perfecting his craft, working with upcycled propane tanks and designing harmonic note arrangements that work with internal dampening from paint to provide the ideal balance of sustain, multi-note resonance, and single-note clarity.
Some Genius Drum models can float in water, and ALL of them feature an incredible Lifetime Exchange policy - you can trade your drum in for another, as many times as you’d like!
LISTEN TO FEATURED SCALES:
As a regenerative business, Genius Drums donates every 7th instrument made to nonprofit music therapy and art installation projects - like PTSD recovery or the floating Genius Sound Temple music sanctuary that debuted at the Oregon Eclipse gathering for 70,000 people (see the video on this exciting community music installation below). Jamesun is also working towards creating permanent public urban installations with these instruments after being inspired by the series of pieces he set up in various west coast festivals in 2017.
