The Sansula belongs to the family of the Kalimba and can be played just as easily. The instrument, with its patented suspended mounting of the resonating block, is an exciting innovation with the original design.
The special feature of the Sansula is its unbelievable sound. Whereby the clear and aesthetic design is most appealing. The oval frame of laminated beechwood is fitted with a membrane which, together with the resonating block, produces a prolonged, soft tone. Furthermore, an impressive ‘wah-wah’ effect can be produced by holding the instrument against the body, on the thigh or laying it on a table and then alternately raising and lowering it while playing.
The tuning – in a-minor with additional tines pitched at B and F – allows wonderful melodies to be produced almost of their own accord, simply by plucking the tines with the thumbs. As all the notes harmonise with each other, beginners also enjoy immediate success with their instrument.
Note: because of the delicate membrane, this Sansula model is not suitable for small children. We offer the Sansula Deluxe as a more robust alternative.
