The Bella advanced magnet pack allows you to tune the 6-inch/6-note Bella down to additional scales. The pack includes 6 magnets, 3 medium (green) and 3 medium (yellow).

The lowest pitches achievable are E4, F4, F#4, A#4, B4, C5. The pack includes 6 magnets: 3 medium (green) and 3 med-small (yellow) magnets.

Tune with a simple push and a pull of the magnets up and down the tongues. Add or remove magnets or change magnet sizes on the tongue to further adjust the pitch. When the desired tuning requires the use of two magnets on one tongue, keep the largest magnet attached to the tongue and stack the smaller magnets on the larger one.

For best results, keep the magnets along the center-line of the tongues when tuning. Here is a scale database website that will provide scales that the Idiopan can be tuned to with the advanced magnet pack: http://www.dolmetsch.com/pianochords.htm

Important Magnet and Choking Hazard Safety Warning!
Read the following warning before you buy and use the magnets.

Disclaimer: Mid-East Mfg., Inc. neither assumes nor accepts any liability for damages resulting from the handling or use of magnets. With your purchase, the buyer confirms that you have read and understood the following warnings, the buyer agrees that he/she is responsible for all damages and injuries caused by the magnets, which include personal injuries, property damages and magnet damages. The buyer must agree with the terms before purchase.

Neodymium magnets are very strong. Handling them with care is necessary to prevent personal injuries, property damages and magnet damages.


    Neodymium magnets are brittle; they can be broken or can splinter in a collision. One should wear gloves and protective glasses when handling these magnets, because splinters and/or spacers could disengage and fly from the magnets.
    ,
    Normal Neodymium magnets will lose their magnetic properties if heated above 175 degrees F (80 degrees C).
    ,
    The strong magnetic fields of neodymium magnets can damage items such as television, computer monitors, credit cards, bank cards, computers, diskettes and other data carriers, video tapes, mechanical watches, hearing aids, loud speakers and VCRs. Pace-makers may be damaged or switch to Test Mode in the presence of a strong magnetic force, if a pace-maker or other electrical body implant is in use, keep a minimum of 3 feet distance.
    ,
    Children should not be allowed to handle neodymium magnets as they can be dangerous. Small magnets pose a choking hazard and should never be swallowed or inserted into any part of the body.
    ,
    Under no circumstances should you try to cut, saw or drill the Neodymium magnets! Not only would the magnet break, but the resulting dust from the magnet is very flammable. Neodymium magnets should never be burned, as burning them will create toxic fumes.

BLEMISHED: 16-Inch steel tongue drum with Tanpura tuning and an antique silver powder coating. Tanpura is a drone instrument used mainly in melodic music. The sound of the tanpura is the very frame of reference on which the entire melody rests. It provides a meditative and calming environment besides providing support and sustain to another melody instrument. A characteristic feature of the tanpura is that its sound is very rich in overtones. This produces a special rich sound which helps the listener to transcend. Our tanpura drum has a set of 9 notes: C#3 D#3 F#3 G#3 B3 C#4 D#4 F#4 G#4. Playing the drum will help you in creating a very peaceful and serene environment. Included are 2 beaters and a economy gig bag.

Female Tanpura - D#4 G#4 G#4 G#3

The Dual Tone Advanced Magnet Pack allows you to tune the 14-inch 16-note Dual Tone Idiopan down to hundreds of additional scales. This pack includes 16 magnets: 2 extra large (Black), 4 large (Blue), 5 Medium (Green), and 5 Medium-Small (Yellow).

Tune with a simple push and a pull of the magnets up and down the tongues. Add or remove magnets or change magnet sizes on the tongue to further adjust the pitch. When the desired tuning requires the use of two extra-large (black) magnets on one tongue, be sure to keep the magnets side by side for best results instead of stacking the extra-large (black) magnets on top of each other. When the tuning requires the use of two smaller magnets on one tongue, keep the largest magnet attached to the tongue and stack the smaller magnets on the larger one.

For best results, keep the magnets along the center-line of the tongues when tuning. Here is a scale database website that will provide hundreds of scales that the Idiopan can be tuned to with the advanced magnet pack: http://www.dolmetsch.com/pianochords.htm
