Zenko is a tongue drum (also called tank drum or hank drum) designed and created by Metal Sounds. This metal-made melodic percussion is the result of a long research & development program leaded by the Metal Sounds' team, in collaboration with scientists and experts of the metal industry. All has been studied: the raw-material (stainless steel), the blades cutting, the assembling, the finish... And the result is up to it!
The Zenko spreads its sounds like smooth and soft waves. Its high harmonics content comes from a perfect tuning that is also reliable along the years. It will produce some differents sounds depending on the kind of play: by hands or with the sticks (included).
The chromatic Pack allows to play in any key. These two instruments can be played individually, in a very intuitive way, or together for no-limit composition possibilities! Take advantage of 16 notes, from Bb3 to C#5. Note that F4 is present on both instruments for a matter of balance and playability.
The Zenko can also be played in a standing position, on a collapsible and adjustable stand specifically designed for it. An essential accessory to increase your mobility with your Zenko.
