I love playing my Orbaphone after work because it’s easy, even for a non-musical person like me, to make it sound great. It’s relaxing and fun combined with wonderful memories of South Africa!

I purchased an Orbaphone from the 'chief thumper' having been introduced to the instrument at our weekly drumming circle. I find the resonance and vibration of the instrument incredibly interesting....Almost therapeutic in a sense. I look forward to many more hours of relaxation.

Stephen Praetorius,

I’m really enjoying it so far -

so glad I bought it!

Hi Rignold, thanks for the Orbaphone, my wife, son, and I all enjoy playing it and love the beautiful sounds it makes. We take it with when we go away and enjoy the sounds in nature too! Great buy and something to be enjoyed forever.

I was told by a doctor to take up some sort of sports or to play an instrument for stress relief. I ordered an Orbaphone and after my 1st 10 mins had the most amazing relaxing experience.

It’s way better than what I expected 
Thank u so so much for your service.

My anxiety and stress is at an all time low!


 I absolutely love my new Orbaphone! It's actually so easy to learn - anyone can spend 10 minutes with it and get the hang of it.

It's really special, and I have high hopes that it will remain in my family for generations to come.

We heard a tongue drum for the first time in Istanbul 6 years ago. Since then we have searched everywhere we travelled in the world for one with the same rich sound, but to no avail. The search ended when we found Thumper Instruments. This instrument is everything and more than the one we first heard in Istanbul. Thank you Rignold, we’re in awe of your skill.
