Available: Diatonic Tembos, Blues Tembos & Pentatonic Tembos. The design of our Tembos is based on a group of instruments called ‘plosive aerophones’. To play a plosive aerophone, you simply strike the end of a long tube (traditionally bamboo) to give the air inside a bit of a jolt, this jolt then creates a vibration which makes a distinctive ‘boing’ sound as the air resonates within the tube. The length of the tube determines the pitch (how high or low the note is) and by making a set and varying the length of the tubes, you’ve created an instrument with a musical scale. We’ve ditched the bamboo and made the Tembos from stainless steel which we tune to the C-major pentatonic scale. A stylish support structure holds the six stainless steel pipes in a vertical orientation with the tallest standing over 3m in height, creating a truly visual and audibly stunning experience.
