C Major Diatonic (C3-C4)
The design of our Tembos is based on a group of instruments called plosive aerophones.
The basic principle of making music on our Tembos is to beat or slap on one end of the tube to create a pressure wave. The length of the tube determines the length of the wave, and different wavelengths make different notes.
