The sound that we produce on our “drums”


The sound that we produce on our “percussions”- sets is an extension of our musical voice. This is very important to developing your own style also! The cymbals, the drums, the percussions, etc... you choose, the kind of drum wood you choose, the sticks you choose and specifically the kinds of heads you choose is what blends the sound! We need to understand that using these kinds of instruments, we need to have also the approval and anointing from G-d! Otherwise we are playing not for G-d’s honor and glory, but for our own, which is in vain! It is about the talents, gifts and anointing that we can bring the anointed Heavenly sound! It have to come from above! (Picture: Native Indian Drum)

Music of Heaven)
You have to see a Christian through the eyes of G-d! Which makes you able to see the amazing G-d's creative work already in them! Many time Christians are often been rejected, because the ways whereby (Christian) men do often discern are by their outward
appearance and refinement, which is so deceptive and lack of ability, lack of spiritual discernment! G-d is looking in the heart; in the innermost being and not upon the outward appearance! G-d knows the potential in our inside! Are we prepare to do it G-d's way? Or is it proud, greed, position, status, money, rejection of knowledge, that will stand in our way? I was astonished by the way how G-d can reveal things by just so common and simple examples! All I wanted to do was lay my hand upon my mouth. I was brought to complete silence and astonishment for an awesome G-d! Are the consolations of G-dsmall with thee? is there any secret thing with thee? (Job 15:11)

My designs in teaching is to make it simple and for an easy way of understanding and reveal G-d's awesome beauty!

Praise ye the L-rd. Praise G-d {YHVH} in His sanctuary: praise Him in the firmament of his power. Praise Him for His mighty acts: praise Him according to His excellent greatness. Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet: praise Him with the psaltery and harp. Praise Him with the timbrel and dance: praise Him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise Him upon the loud cymbals: praise Him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let everything that hath breath praise the L-rd. Praise ye the Lord. (Psalm 150:1-6) 



When real devoted worship becomes reality!


When we are left to worship G-d in our own way, we simply will NOT worship Him! For our flesh will not allow us to worship Him in the Spirit! We can choose to align our sound with the sound of Heaven! There is so much more, which we do not know yet. By our "walk" on earth, G-d will reveal us more and more how to worship Him, with the tremendous effects of real devoted worship before His throne, by His Holy Spirit {Roach HaKodesh}! Music was originally created as a powerful spiritual force to worship YHVH around His Divine Throne and have the power to grip men's hearts. It not about only a good message, but a combination of radical devoted worship in His “Courtyard of His Temple”; discerning the perfect will of the Holy Spirit; give Him the freedom so that it will be relevant and effective and bear fruit! The key is that we will worship Him and we sing and praise to the Lord of Host together with the Millions of angelic voices! There is a place where Ever-changing Heavenly musical melodies in endless scales of indescribable beauty are like a Spontaneous Well of Living Waters gushing forth from His Throne that will flow for your refreshment! There are few people who impact the inner-most chamber of your heart, and they are individuals who understand worship in a most intimate and non-self-serving way!



The word "percussion" comes from the Latin word “percussion” for hitting. Every instrument played by hitting or shaking is part of the percussion family, and there are thousands. Percussion instruments can create a definite pitch or note or an indefinite pitch.
(Use of percussions in ancient Rome! See illustration below)
While the human voice is undoubtedly the oldest instrument around, the drums are second. Drums along with other percussion instruments were probably among the earliest instruments. There is evidence that the first membrane drums consisted of naturally hollow tree trunks covered at one or both ends with the skins of water animals, fish or reptiles. Later, skins of hunted game and cattle were used. Drum bodies could be of wood, metal, earthenware, or bone. The head or heads could be fastened by glue, nails, or laced or lapped to the body of the drum.
(Illustration: Howard Matheney; conga's)  

Since those early times, hundreds of drums and percussion instruments have been invented. In early jazz groups, there were two drummers. One played the snare drum and one played the bass drum and cymbal. Around 1909, William Ludwig came up with the first modern bass drum pedal, which allowed one drummer to play bass and snare drums at the same time.

When drummers talk about percussionists, they usually refer to Latin percussionists enhancing their songs with small hand instruments such as conga drums, bongos, timbales, cowbells, tambourines, maracas, rattles, scrapers and more.

History Chinese Drum


The character for “drum” was first found in the inscriptions on bones and tortoise shells of the Shang Dynasty (BC 1562 - 1066). At that time more than half of all musical instruments were percussion instruments. Chinese drums come in a huge variety of sizes and styles and they have been used in every aspect of Chinese society from use in battle for signaling troops, to use in ceremonies as well. The "Remo" Chinese Drum combines the venerable tradition of Chinese drum-making with contemporary materials, to bring a new level of durability and ease of care to educators and professionals alike.

Klong Yao


The Klong Yao , originally from Asian, comes each with deep and well defined bass tones. The synthetic fiberskyn drumheads are weather-resistant and durable, and easy to maintain. The unique traditional shape combined with our fabric finishes create a fantastic looking drum with a sound “personality” all its own. (Source:

The Klong Yao shells are made of Acousticon an exclusive (Remo) process, and come with TYPE 2 FIBERSKYN® 3 drumheads. These innovative materials result in a drum that is lightweight, durable and great fun to play. While drawing upon the traditional body style, the drumheads are pitched in the high range, as opposed to the more traditional low range. This creates a drum that produces a high open tones and slaps, but still delivers full deep bass tones . All Klong Yao are rope-tuned in the traditional manner, and the unique fabric finishes add character and style and make it one of our most attractive drums.




Klong Yao means “long drum” in the Thai language, and it is an apt description. The goblet shape of the drum is similar to the African Djembé but with a much longer bottom portion. This deepens the bass tone of the instrument. A removable small round patch of over-cooked rice paste and charcoal is applied to the head to further deepen the tone for performance. In the Thai tradition the drum body is made of wood, and the single drumhead is made of animal skin. The head is tightened by means of thin cord, or string. They have been an important part of festivals, celebrations and the religious music in Buddhist temples for generations. 

Percussion Conga Set
“Verve Wood”


History of the “Verve Wood” - Percussion Conga Set

Coming from both African and Cuban influences, it’s no wonder the conga drum has played such a major role in modern music. The traditional Cuban Conga was made from olive barrels or steam-bent staves of wood glued together with a calf or buffalo head tacked to it. Technological advances, such as acoustician shells, fiberskyn, nuskyn tucked drumheads, have greatly improved on the manufacturing methods and materials used in the past. The result has been a significant enhancement in the sound and performance capabilities of these exceptional instruments. Percussion Conga set’s are equipped with fiberskyn and nuskyn and are mostly constructed with Aged Siam Oak Wood with High-Gloss wood finishing and are available in sizes 10” and 11” diameter, 28” in height! They are full size drums that are used by professional and drum enthusiasts alike!



In Africa, one of the Djembé’s functions is as a “healing drum”. Remo Djembé’s are based on the same traditional Djembé tone and form combined with Remo's modern advances including a wide range of tuning systems, heads, finishes and sizes. (Kinte Kloth)

REMO’S key-tuned Djembé has had great success as the most user friendly Djembé in the world. With features like portability, tenability, durability, and playability it’s no wonder why it is the choice for thousands and thousands of professional and recreational drummers for years. This beautifully designed drum came from Africa

History of Djembe


The Adinkra symbols represents popular proverbs and maxims, record historical events, express particular attitudes or behavior, or concepts uniquely related to abstract shapes. The Adinkra symbols are found on several traditional cloths produced in Ghana, Africa. Another well known cloth is the Kinte Cloth.
The history of the Djembé dates back at least as far as the 12
th century, when it originated in the great Mali Emperi of West Africa. It is integral to the tribal families of the Bambara, Mandingo and Malinke cultures. The Djembe continues to be an important and popular drum in West Africa and can be heard in the present-day countries of Mali, Guina, Senegal, the Ivory Coast and many others. African drum masters refer to it as the “Magical Drum” because its “power” to move people, and as the “Healing Drum” because of its long history as a fundamental tool in the African healing traditions. To this day, the Djembé remains an important and respected rhythm for the people worldwide!

 Djembé only for the sounds of music for G-d!


We will use the Djembé only for the sounds of music for G-d! Because music was originally created as a powerful spiritual force to worship the Father {YHVH} around His Divine Throne and have the power to move men's hearts. Good music belongs to G-d only! Depending on our personal motivation to make music, it can be well-pleasing to G-d, or evil or self idol worship! (Isaiah 1:10, 18)

It's is in G-d’s will to share with those people, with hearts of devotion only for Him, who are prepared to handle responsibility over the powerful  music from the Father's {YHVH} Throne. Music is also a form of expression and language, in the view of the Gospel, to reach, touch and bless Christians or people who still live worldly! It causes them to repent of their sins and will bring them to salvation, so that they become new born Christians. We can choose to align our sound with the sound of Heaven! Music with its songs is spiritual, and a powerful media for communicating. The Churches have to discern the voice and will of G-D and must learn to use this form of communication skillfully!

Percussion-sounds - music for G-d...only!

We need to tune in with the sounds of Heaven!


When the streams hears a note when they feel a note is coming as the same note as them it starts to vibrate! Note’s are started to vibrate! That’s what the L-rd asks us to do also; so in tuned in with Him, when He talks we are vibrating in His sounds! Tuning in the sounds of the Drums, whether it is warfare, prophetic dance, or prophetic intercessions or prophetic worship, we need to tune in with the sounds of Heaven!
Music of hand percussion instruments. An example of  some of hand-held rhythm and effects instruments including:
Tambourines; Congas;  Rain sticks; Tubano; Djembe; Bongo's, etc...




The Tubano is a Remo invention and an entirely new development for a musical instrument. Tubano drums are the preferred choice for drumming programs where students range in ages 5 to 85 and are very light and easy to store and maintain. (Not having available, yet)

I am also looking after the following instruments: Tubano (worldwide; see picture;  

Traditional 'Orchestral' "GONG" 


The first choice of the world's leading symphony orchestras, drum corps and rock stars alike. One-piece cast construction crafted in China in a Centuries-old tradition. A complex blend d of highs and lows with beautiful warm overtones and plenty of attack when necessary. I am looking for this instrument as well!
