We have developed the world's first tongue drum, which has not only the built-in pickups but also has the preamp with EQ and effects. Electronics has been specially designed for our instrument. First generation of GUDA Fx has 4 pickups and preamp onboard with 1 or 2 additional effects (such as Reverb, Chorus, Delay). We created the second generation of GUDA Fx, taking into account the wishes of our customers.

First of all, we have split the electronics - internal preamp with 4-6 knobs is a good Idea, though we decided to make more advanced electronics which would occupie more space inside the drum. Moreover, since we started to make our tongue drums from stainless steel (or stainless steel + aluminium), it makes sense to make all electronics in external module - you can take your stainless Guda wherever you want and not afraid that it will be damaged by water. So, GUDA Fx II has splitted electronics: 4 pickups inside the drum and the external more powerful MultiFx module with advanced (based on FET) preamp with active EQ and 3 effects: Reverberation, Delay and Chorus. The volume, tembre and effects and  can be easily adjusted by 9 knobs

GUDA-Fx in the unplugged state is no different from the GUDA Standard - the same design, the same acoustic sound, the same loudness. But when connected to an amplifier or sound card you discover entirely new possibilities.

GUDA can be connected directly to a computer, mixer, amplifier, guitar or bass combo. Now you can play in a group with other instruments (electric guitar, bass, drums, keys, etc.), jam with friends, give live concerts or to record your compositions.

The electronics has been designed specifically for the instrument GUDA. It consists of 4 special pickups, preamp, EQ, effects module, audio output, the external power supply input and control knobs. GUDA Fx II has the following options: 

  • Materials: stainless steel or stainless steel+aluminium
  • Weight: 3-4 kg.
  • Diameter: 50-53 cm
  • 4 pickups and the output jack inside the drum
  • Optional MultiFx box includes: preamp with 2 band EQ and 3 effects: Reverb, Chorus and Delay
  • Available designs

The instrument has a standard output "jack" (1/4 inch) and is powered by a 9 volt battery or from a standard power supply. The reverb module allows you to get a clean and natural effect. Flexible settings allow you to adjust the effect of light "hall reverberation" to the hard spring reverb and "slap echo". You can flexibly customize your sound using the volume and frequency. Adding / reducing the level of the bass / treble can get a completely different sound coloration.

Frequency and reverb adjustment allow to obtain a percussive effect or more deep and solid sound. Perfectly audible ping, clicks and noises. Since GUDA can be easily connected to any amplifier, mixer or sound card, you can use additional chains of effects (just as well  as electric guitar players and other musicians do)

With Delay and Chorus effects you can make much more - psychedelic, space and trance sounds will greatly diversify your sound palette and allow you to create unusual and cool music.
