KICKSTART of the MuratCoskun Tenor Framedrum!
After many, many years Christian Hedwitschak stepped into the world of oriental frame drums!
The first oriental frame drum made by HEDWITSCHAK DRUMS is now available!
Murat Coskun and HEDWITSCHAK DRUMs have been working together on this a long time till the perfect product was ready for the market.
Something that is a normal feature for bodhráns since many years comes now in a very smart solution to the world of oriental frame drums:
The tool-less tuning system!
The MuratCoskun Tenor Framedrum comes in 40x8cm with a special treated goatskin and with the revolutionary HiLo tuning system which works without tool and is smooth-running even at very high skin tension. So tuning is quick and easy even during playing.
The instruments of the first series run (10 drums) of the MuratCoskun Tenor Framedrum are available for an introductory price of 395 EUR, including a fitting soft case! The regular price will then be at 445 EUR.
The drums are already in production and should be finished and ready for shipping around early October.
This is what Murat Coskun, exceptional percussionist, lecturer, composer and festival director has to say about the MCTFD:
Frame drums are no longer just “simple” instruments. It’s astonishing how this ancient and seemingly archaic instrument adapts to today’s music, needs and standards. While I’m still fascinated by its simplicity, it’s also always about exploring new possibilities, about differentiated sound aesthetics, flexibility in playing positions, and practicability, for example when tuning the drum. That’s why I’m happy to see there are innovative frame drum makers who tirelessly work on developing new visions and making them a reality. It was Christian Hedwitschak who came up with this idea of a completely new tuning system many years ago. After years of joint development work, a new "baby" has emerged – the Tenor Frame Drum. It’s not just the very simple tuning system that fascinates me. Above all, it is also the pleasantly warm yet clear and overtone-rich sound in the tenor range. Thanks to its low weight, I can also hold and play the drum while standing. And even in the freehand position, it doesn’t lose its "oomph". Last not least, due to its outstanding design, it’s also beautiful to look at. ?
I am very excited to see what new adventures playing the drum on my next tours will bring...
