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 Solstice scale is based upon an G open tune chord (D G B D) and can be played in a major or minor mode (with the Bb). The B3 note in the center gives a medium/low bass that is used as a pivot. The sharp and flat notes that are around this basic chord gives this model all its richness. For musicians of all level.
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.
