Designed for children ages 2 to 12 years and Adults, The Tembos Diatonic are an awesome musical instrument with a style and sound unlike anything you’ve witnessed before. It has an array of gleaming stainless steel tubes that resemble the towering pipes of an organ in a cathedral, but it is played very differently. Instead of keys, the pipes make sounds when their open ends are slapped with the attached neoprene paddles. This sends vibrating air through the pipe and out the other end, where it emerges as a terse, pleasant-sounding note. There are a total of six pipes which each have different lengths, allowing musicians to play a full range of notes within the C Major Diatonic Scale. There is a paddle connected by a cable to both sides of the instrument, so that one musician can easily use it to reach each pipe, or two musicians can each take one paddle and play a duet.
