Tank Drum Percussion Samples (Download)

Radio Runner has announced the release of a free percussion sample pack. The Tank Drum percussion instruments are made out of propane tanks. They can be single or double-sided and they’re tuned over a span of 4 octaves using exclusive scale variations and tongue arrangements for a dynamic range of notes and a unique tone.

My friend brought over a little surprise this last weekend, a $900 custom-ordered tank drum! I absolutely love how the thing sounds, it’s super ethereal and has tons of overtones in it that compliment each note so well. So naturally, I had him record the thing. We sat down and recorded both sides of the drum, so we’ve got individual notes up the scale for G Major and its relative minor, E Minor, for you to recreate his instrument.
