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 Pygmy scale is a C minor pentatonic scale with a 7th minor. The C4 note in the center gives a medium bass that is used as a pivot. This scale is a pentatonic mode (5 notes that are repeated) that comes from Africa. It will fit perfectly with manu ethnic instruments. A beloved scale by World Music musicians.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.Details: • weight 2.8 Kg (6.17 Lbs) • diameter 32 cm (12.6) • height 13 cm (5.12) • 9 notes: C4 D4 Eb4 G4 Bb4 C5 D5 Eb5 G5 • Deluxe bag included • Support ring included • Pair of sticks included

On Absolute Hybrid shells, the design consists of a core ply of wenge a very hard and heavy wood native to Africa, sandwiched between plies of maple, well known for its clear tone. This hybrid design delivers a drum tone that plays rich and clear across the full dynamic range, from pianissimo to fortissimo.Hook LugHook lugs offer quick and easy head replacement, precision tuning, and can readily handle high-tension tuning. Lug bases are designed with a small footprint to maximise tone output from the hybrid shell.Optimized Bearing EdgeThe bearing edge angle on the bass drum differs from the angle used on the tom and snare shells to optimise tonal balance in thedrum set. A 45º/R1.5 edge is used on the snare and toms to a balanced tone; while a 30º/ R1.5 edge on the bass drum shell brings out more low-end tone for a deeper, more powerful sound.Vent HoleThe vent hole plays an important role in performance, since it affects not only the sensation of hitting the drum (the impact) but also the initial sound, sustain and tone.Through an exhaustive series of prototypes, YAMAHA has discovered the optimal number and vent hole position depending on the air capacity of each shell. Particularly, vent holes contribute to the enhancement of tone colors in midrange to low-frequency sounds, as well as the control of sustain.Vintage finish interiorShell interiors are coated with our exclusive Vintage Natural finish for enhanced tone and refined looks.3.0mm Aluminum Die-Cast HoopsAluminium die-cast hoops deliver a strong tight sound with an extraordinary attack and decay.
