Guda Ortus is the first and the only tongue drum made from aluminum in the world. Also, Guda Ortus has a unique shape which in combination with the material gives a number of advantages:
Very loud, bright and clean sound
Super light weight
Goblet-like form allows you to conveniently hold the instrument on your laps
New line of designs was developed especially for Guda Ortus: https://guda-drum.com/ortus-designs
Multi Fx Module by Zen percussion was created especially for our model Guda Fx tongue drum, but very soon it becomes popular among musicians that play different musical instruments. We decided to create more powerful electronics to replace Guda Fx first generation internal electronics. i.e. Guda Fx of the second generation has only the internal pickups, and all other electronics were put inside the Multi Fx module
Guda 2.0 Plus model differs from Guda 2.0 Standard model in that it comes with a central bass tongue (aka ding), that bears certain similarity to a handpan. The sound hole is located at the bottom; it is closed with a removable wooden plug decorated with a logo (sound of the instrument with the plug installed is more accurate and clear whereas removed plug makes Guda`s sound more diffuse, atmospheric).
Guda Double by Zen Percussion is more than just two-sided tongue drum. Both sides are adjusted in such a way that the sound of one is amplified by the other side. Thus, the effect of natural reverberation is achieved. Overall sound is very rich with huge sustain and pleasant overtones. We recommend Guda Double for meditation and relaxation. Also it is good for single playing - if play alone you have the feeling that someone accompanies you. Which of course does not prevent you from jamming with other musicians.
More than three years of experience in creation and communication with our customers was a good source of advice for engineering our new model, which we plan to replace the first-generation lineup of Guda Drum.
Zen-Percussion company proudly presents the new Guda 2.0 model - an improved version of our most popular model Guda Standard. Now all the models of our premium tongue drum lineup (Guda Standard, Guda Plus, and Guda Fx) will be produced in 2.0 format.
Introducing our new model - GUDA Neo. In the production of this model, we have taken into account more than three years experience in the production of the steel tongue drums, as well as the wishes of our customers.
Rope edging for GUDA drum and handpans
We create this handwoven rope decoration as part of our GUDA designs. Also this attribute makes using of GUDA (as well as handpans) more comfortable. Rope edging comes by default for all GUDA models but can be purchased separately.
Some handpans or other tongue drums are equipped with our rope decorations by default too (for example, OMana handpans). This decoration does not affect the sound but gives more comfortable feel and look for the instrument. Can be easily worn or removed

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.
Guda+ differs from Guda Standart model with a presence of an additional (bass) tongue in the upper part of the instrument.
The main speciality of GUDA - 2 notes on each tongue (main tone + octave overtone), which makes Guda's sound bright and lively. GUDA is the most loud tongue drum with excellent response and can be played easily with fingers or mallets.
