The Orbaphone® started as a fun project to add something extra to my regular drum circle. I'd seen people bringing different home made instruments along and I wanted to do something different.
I originally wanted a Hang drum but the costs were prohibitive. So I began searching . After much research and fiddling about in the workshop I settled on the design as it is today.
The Orbaphone® is constructed from recycled materials. Most of the jigs and tools used to manufacture them are also made from recycled material, including old washing machine spares and scrapped iron.
They have been an instant hit from the start with sales in Cape Town, Joburg, Pretoria, Durban, London, Israel, Singapore and Sweden.
They are adored by professional musicians, music therapists, healers and novices alike.
They're fun, easy to play
and did I mention fun?!
