Beat Root was created in 2014 by 2 brothers passionate with music and quickly made its place and its community of fans by creating the first electro-acoustic tongue drum equipped with a microphone and a jack, allowing it to be connected to an amp or other accessories. This high-quality tongue drum produces a deep and captivating sound that very much resembles the hang drum. Its design is modest but very well-crafted. It has been noticed by Yamaha at the Frankfurt Musikmesse show in Germany and is being distributed throughout whole Japan.
In 2018, Beat Root innovates again with their Multiscale model that features a simple and intuitive tuning system to offer six scales in one tongue drum. This model has been declined and tuned in 432HZ, a frequency used in musicotherapy which has the reputation to alleviate stress and anxiety and increase well-being.
In 2020, Beat Root releases its Full Tone model intended for musical awakening and music learning with 4 different scales. This tongue drum is also electro-acoustic but is most suitable for educational purposes or play with music sheet.
In terms of price, the price remains very affordable since each model in their catalog is sold at $526 with drumsticks and a carrying case.
