About GUBAREV drum Plus Basic
is a large tongue musical instrument 50cm in diameter from stainless steel. It has eight petals by a circle and a ninth bass note in the center.
The basis is an innovative tone setting as on the Standart model. Manipulation and forging of the tongue causes very interesting effect – one tongue produces 2 notes instead of one: main tone + overtone, which is commonly tuned in one octave higher. The main note sound along the length of the tongue, and the note of octave higher sounds across its width. It is hard to understand, but very simple to hear. So when you play the Gubarev drum you can hear the main tone plus additional «steelpan-like» overtone which is tuned on 1 octave higher (also it can be tuned in another interval, but 1 octave is the most universal tune).
Plus model has a hole in the lower hemisphere which also serves as a resonator. Similarly to the Standart model, the Plus model has a high-quality pure sound that resonates deeply with a long sustain, and the bass note in the center provides more opportunities for creating rhythmic compositions and expands the dynamic range of melodies.
All engraved drawings I make with my own hands by a metal engraver. That is why every Gubarev instrument looks unique. The engraver removes the top brown oxide layer from the metal and leaves behind a silvery line. I try to use national Ukrainian motives or sacred symbols of kindness, love and peace. The copper-brown color formed after heat treatment of stainless steel gives the instrument a nobleness and a vast field for decoration with engraved patterns and ornaments. Also, the surface of the drum will not change its color and will not rust, and the owner of a unique instrument will always attract attention.
