Description

The “Plato Ulu” is the bigger version of the “Lulu”. It consists of nine notes that creates a scale on the front face plus nine resonators on the back face. The Ulu Plate reaches lower registers than the lulu, more volume and greater sustain. Scales ranging from F3 to D5. Its soft and long-lasting tremolo effect hypnotizes and relaxes. It is unique in the family of steel tongue drums. The sounds that comes out of the Plato Ulu reminds more of a polyphonic gong or a set of bells than a drum. Its two halves are pressed from 2.5mm certified steel. Temperate, and harmonized under a tuning concept similar to binaural sounds, resulting in an deep waving soundscape of harmonious vibrations. Each piece is hand painted by local artists. Very resistant and flexible gloss varnish that does not affect the quality of the sound of this amazing instrument It can be played with mallets or fingers, on the table, on the lap, or for long lasting sounds, hanging from a stand.
