    This is pretty cool. It’s as if the player actually memorized how each spot sounded like.

    Its really cool to see how one instrument can change pitches just by tapping or hitting different parts. I wonder how they make the pitch change though… Like is it the deepness of the indentations or the way he hits it…?

    You are correct. The size of the dimple changes the pitch. The bigger the indentation, the lower the pitch. Good observation. Mr H

    This is so cool!! That the instrument just need to hit one part to make the main note, and all the other dimples are just to change the pitch of the main note. I wonder what would happen if the dimples go lower or bigger, will the pitch change as well?

    Wow! This is really cool! I find it interesting that if you hit one section and a different section, then you will get different sounds. It looks like he had to memorize/improvise this because he has no sheet music.

    WOW!! That was so cool. I saw that he could change the pitch by tapping other places. I think this is a very unique instrument. I wonder if Drumsticks work…

    Wow! this is the best instrument sound that i have ever heard before. i wonder how that instrument works. It’s so cool that it sounds different when he pitches other parts of the instrument.

    This instrument is very interesting. I like how it rings but also makes a contrasting sound

    Amazing sounds and echos. Very strange but unique instrument. Ithought it would make a low humming sound. I think you hit the dents to create different pitches.

    wow this is cool but i wonder how the instrument changes sound and pitch if the person tapes on a place in the instrument.did the person memorize where to hit to get the exact note that he wants. that really awsome.
