  • A series of stainless steel tubes are tuned to a C-major diatonic scale (a complete octave of 8 notes CDEFGABC), each generates a different tone with varying volumes depending on how hard you hit them - their audible strength is staggering!
  • Both intriguing and addictive, the interactive Tembos allow you to make surprisingly funky music simply by striking them with the integral neoprene lined paddles.
  • High quality materials and features impart exceptional tone, tuning stability, durability and ease of play. A stylish support structure holds the stainless steel pipes in a vertical orientation with the tallest standing over 3m in height, creating a truly visual and audibly stunning experience.
  • Fun to explore Tembos offer a rewarding multi-sensory experience for even the most rhythmically repressed!
  • Why Tembo? Well, the shape of the instruments reminded us of Elephant Trunks and thus became the inspiration for the name Tembo which means ‘elephant’ in Swahili.
  • A pair of paddles is included
