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.
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 durable neoprene paddles provided.
