Diatonic Tembos

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 tube length determines the wave's size, and different wavelengths make different notes.

These stainless steel Tembos are tuned to the C-major diatonic scale.

Quirky and rather addictive, you can make some surprisingly pleasing deep sounds on the diatonic Tembos by striking the notes with the firm PE (Polyethylene) foam paddles provided.
