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 Harmony scale is a very versatile scale that combines a C minor and a C# major scale. The C4 note in the center gives a medium bass that is used as a pivot. It offers a large range of different chords bringing inspiration to the musician. This scale is a Metal Sounds creation, just try it!
