Zenko Metal Sounds tongue drum Akebono
Zenko is a tongue drum (also called tank drum or metal tuned drum) designed and created by Metal Sounds. This melodic percussion instrument is the result of a long research & development program headed by the Metal Sound’s team, in collaboration with scientists and experts in the metal industry. All has been studied: the raw-material (stainless steel), the cutting of the blades , the assembly, the finish… And the results are incredible!
The Zenko emanates its sounds like smooth and soft waves. Its high harmonics content comes from a perfect tuning process that is also reliable along the years. It will produce differents sounds depending on the kind of play: by hands or with sticks (included).
The Akebono scale is a C minor pentatonic scale. A G3 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 repeated) that originated in Japan. This is one of the best scales for relaxation and music-therapy, a unique mood!
