In 2006 Philippe Maignaut and the Djoliba Percussion Store began a collaboration and research project that resulted five years later in the birth of the Spacedrum® and a new company, SAS Metal Sounds. Metal Sounds, a small company based in Toulouse, France, today manufactures Spacedrum® (handpan), Zenko® (steel tongue drum).
Metal Sounds offers quality musical instruments, original creations such as Zenko® and Spacedrum®. Our instruments all enjoy special care and a standardized and optimized production process. Forming, cutting, assembly and tuning, and all finishes are made in our workshops (unless otherwise stated). Each instrument is finely tuned, with several ranges and frequencies available through a strobotuner called Linotune® allowing precision tuning.
Metal Sounds customers tend to be musicians, therapists, music schools, and ordinary people who enjoy their unique metallic, melodic percussion instruments.
