GUDA 2.0 Fx

Guda 2.0 Fx is the second generation of Guda drums with improved electronics and advanced double-tongue construction. It is based on our Guda 2.0 Standard or Guda 2.0 Plus models, i.e. it has the same characteristics as Guda 2.0 Plus or Standard models but also equipped with 4 internal pickups and the output jack. Could be also equipped with optional Multi Fx pedal by Zen Percussion. This model has replaced the Guda Fx of the first generation

 

Few words about the history of making

3 years ago we created first acoustic-electric tongue drum with internal electronics. First generation of Guda Fx has single tongue construction, 4 pickups and internal block of electronic which included a preamp with EQ and Reverb effect. It was powered with 9V battery. It also have 4-5 knobs on its surface. Guda Fx became very popular soon and... But we decide to improve the usability, reliability and the sound. So we decided to leave only 4 pickups and the 1/4" jack inside the Guda. And put all electronics in the external Fx module (Multi Fx module by Zen Percussion). These actions gave us the following advantages:

  • We remove knobs from the surface - somebody liked them but somebody not. Anyway, the relability of the drum is better when it does not have any extra parts
  • We make much more powerful electronics with betters sound, output volume and with more effects (preamp based on FET with 2-way EQ and 3 effects - Chorus, Reverb and Delay)
  • All internal parts except pickups were moved to MultiFx pedal. Gudas are made from quality stainless steel and we position our drums as "all-weather" instruments. So if you want to use Guda Fx electro drum, you can connect it to MultiFx box or just use amplifier (combo, mixer, else). And if you want to take your Guda Fx outdoors (there are many travelers among our clients that like to go to the sea, mountains, junles and else) you can use it like usual acoustic tongue drum without any fear that the internal electronics could be damaged by water, dust or jolt.
  • No battery needed
  • Also, if you do not need additional efects or if you already have external effect pocessors/plugins, you can plug you Guda Fx directly to your devices. However we recommend to use Guda Fx with our Multi Fx module
