    How to Choose Your Zenko Drum Tuning

    Know what makes Zenko the "Porsche" of Tongue-Drums? 

    Tongue drums have become immensely popular recently and there are now a large variety of different brands out there offering their own version of these portable and robust metal instruments. You can find inexpensive ones in music stores that are usually mass produced. So what makes Zenko Drums made by Metal Sounds so special out of all the tongue drums that are out there? 

    With meticulous pitch-perfect tuning, the Zenko Drum allows you to discover bewitching and meditative harmonics that will level-up your sound meditation and music therapy offerings for live sessions. It's a professional grade instrument that can also be mounted on a adapted cymbal stand (there's a bolt-hole on the bottom! and we have adapters) to add accents as part of your drum kit or percussion setup.

    Basically, the Zenko is the "Porsche" (the beautiful European sports-car) of the tongue drum: sleek, elegant, and of the highest quality. In comparison, other mass-produced and sometimes colorful tongue drums on the market at lower price points can be great for parties, playing with kids, basic music instruction, getting all sandy at the beach or simple musical fun!
