AudioThing has released Tank Drum for Kontakt 5, a new virtual instrument based on samples from a steel tongue drum.

Also called hang drums, these instruments are usually made out of propane tanks with tongues of different sizes and tuned in different scales.

The instrument sampled features 8 tongues and is tuned in E minor pentatonic. It was played both with hands and rubber mallets, along with some sound effects with hands and brushes. The sound has a long release and is rich in harmonics.
