Whalophone – is a superb quality waterphone produced by Turtle Drums. The extraordinary, beautiful and eerie sound that it produces gives an out-of-this-world sensation to the listener being a perfect instrument to create moving atmosphere in concerts, movies, spectacles and all sort of shows (also a great addition in a storytelling experience). There are many ways to produce sound from whalophone – you can use your bare hands, knock the spikes with your fingers or with mallets, or finally, use a bow which significantly enhances the spectrum of sounds. To create incredible “wah-wah” effect just pour some water inside the whalophone and listen how it talks to you when you play it! Classic whalophone consists of 24 different length rods permanently attached to a stainless steel body with silver joints. High silver content silver joints provide extra durability and a great resonance of the instrument. Rods are made out of brass, alloy known for its great sound properties and transparent timbre. There are no “dead” or “dull” rods as with some other makes! We make sure each waterphone we produce is unique and meets highest sound standards. Saucer of the whalophone is made out of thick stainless steel, with increased chromium content (unlike waterphones of other makes) which does not bend or “dance” when played. To fill whalophone with water just pour some of it into the holding pipe! Each whalophone we make is unique – all materials used to produce whalophones meet highest quality standards – our customers are 100% satisfied with our long – lasting waterphones! I did receive my Whalophone and it is a remarkable instrument! Thank you so much for your beautiful artistry and craftmanship. The sound is truly stunning, unlike anything I have ever heard before. Creating a palette of very different textures and sounds. It is the perfect accompaniment to my Sound Healing/Meditation practice. My clients adore the sounds as well, saying it “transports” them to other realms! Review by Michelle from NYC. You can also watch classic whalophone being played on YouTube.
