Professional Bamboo Zampona with 17 tubes (upper row 9 tubes, lower row 8 tubes)
This Instrument is based on the G Major Scale (contains an F#) , tuned at standard 4:40 going from Low D to high B.
The bamboo canes have been selected with tone and quality in mind. This instrument will last you a long time. As with any other instrument, the Zampona will need some TLC. (rub some linseed or Tung oil inside and out the tubes until dry)
Bamboo is a very strong material that can withstand a lot of pressure and the elements but you need to be careful with temperatures higher than 100 degrees Fahrenheit which can crack the bamboo canes or too wet which will prevent the tube from reflecting inside air to produce clear sound .
