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 Penta C is a C major pentatonic scale. A A3 in the center will give a deep bass that will be used as a pivot. This scale is a pentatonic mode (5 notes that are repeted), it be played by beginners or experimented musicians. Perfect to play with other instruments in a C major harmony, this is a highly energetic range.
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 Zenko can also be played in a standing position, on a collapsable and adjustable stand specifically designed for it. An essential accessory to increase your mobility with your Zenko.
