About GUDA drum Carps Koi

My innovation consists in the method of tuning. Manipulation and forging of the tongue causes very intresting effect – one tongue produces 2 notes instead of one: main tone+overtone, which is commonly tuned +1 octave. This is effect makes sound more volumetric and deep.

GUDA drum Carps Koi is designed specifically for travel. It’s easy to take it with you to nature, in a car or plane. GUDA drum Carps Koi is lightweight and compact. However, it has a very rich and full-bodied sound. The instrument consists from two hemispheres made from 1,5 mm steel. Eight oval-shaped tongues are located at the upper hemisphere. The lower hemisphere has no holes and serves as the amplifier of the resonance.


GUDA drum Carps Koi is made of stainless steel and painted with special thermo-resistant enamel. Enamel has a matte finish and is very pleasant to touch. Black color looks very elite and unusual, such an instrument attracts attention, and the sound will not leave anyone indifferent.

Sometimes, due to natural mutations, various color deviations appeared in some carps. Such fish with a non-standard pattern were not eaten and were kept mainly for decorative purposes. Gradually, the cultivation of colored carps grew into a hobby for the peasants. The owners crossed their fish, while getting new color variations. This hobby also became popular among merchants and the nobility and gradually spread throughout Japan. Sometimes koi kept in the ponds of castles during the constant feudal wars were considered by the owners as an untouchable food supply in case of a long siege.
