Zenith' means “the point in the sky or celestial sphere directly above an observer,” or “the time at which something is most powerful or successful.”
The Zenith tonguepan is a 12 note, steel percussion instrument that has a tuned harmonic series in every tongue (2-5 partials, depending on the note). It is made from 2 hydro-formed shells of our special high-carbon material, 19” (48cm) in diameter, with a 3mm thick top shell for great note clarity and sustain. Like our smaller Helios tonguepan, the Zenith comes with our special “technomantic finish" which is a patina and clear- powder coat finish. It also has a built in pick-up system, rubber feet, rubber rim, and laser etched sound hole plug.

How to play a tongue drum
The notes are laid out on each of the drums so that you can create a most beautiful melody by starting at the bottom and alternating right and left hands as you go around the instrument. You can also play a beautiful tune by moving around the instrument in a circular manner.
Watch a video that I made while out in the forest. I offer a few different ideas to create your own tunes.
