Dennis Havlena - "Hank Drum"

This is an awesome discovery for those you (like me) to own a "Hang Drum" by Panart, but can't afford to buy one (last one went for $6K on Ebay).

Dennis Havlena, a legendary DIY instrument maker has invented a poor man's version of the Hang Drum, made out of a new propane tank. You can check out the building instructions on Dennis's website:

There are also several video's on YouTube of this instrument:

Here are some of my favorites:

Here's a ebay auction of a custom one:
