The Klangauge is a tunable slit drum made primarily of metal. It follows the pentatonic scale,
and is sometimes referred to as the steel tongue drum or simply steel drum.
The Klangauge is similar to a singing bowl, and also produces overtone-like sounds.
However eight distinct sounds can be produced.
Our customers often ask us whether the Klangauge is a Hang, which is another type of percussion instrument.
In reality, it is not.
However, the development of the Klangauge was largely influenced by the Hang, which was our greatest inspiration.In the end we have
created an instrument whose physical properties of creating a sound are unrelated to and independent of the Hang.
The Klangauge is tuned with magnets on the underside of each of the tongues.
This allows the user to individually change the tuning of each tongue
if the first tuning attempt was not completed successfully.
The Klangauge can also be tuned on two different scales, producing a unique selection of beautiful sounds.
With the basic configuration of tuning magnets, it is possible to use two different tuning scales:
F-major pentatonic or E-minor pentatonic.
The instructions for the tuning of the Klangauge are enclosed.
At the time of your purchase, you can choose which type of tuning scale you prefer. However, it can be changed at any time!
