Description


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 innovation entirely of our own design.

Since its launching in 2001, the Sansula has quickly become a bestseller and found thousands of friends at home and abroad.

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.

Sansula Basic - The lightest Sansula, but is sound as good as Sansula Delux, downside is that It is equipped with a thin synthetic membrane which may not survive dropping the instrument or using the membrane as a drum. Strong alternatives are the Sansula Renaissance and Deluxe models.

Sansula Renaissance - Sansula Renaissance was developed to combine the best features of our other models in one. While the basic Sansula instrument has a relatively delicate membrane, the Renaissance is fitted with a robust REMO (USA) drumskin. The Renaissance is resistant to moisture, so it retains its tension under conditions of varying air humidity and thus also retains its wonderful sound. The Renaissance is resistant to moisture, so it retains its tension under conditions of varying air humidity and thus also retains its wonderful sound.

Sansula Delux - The Sansula Deluxe is a further development of our basic Sansula model. In response to the wishes expressed by many customers, we have fitted it with a robust membrane of genuine goatskin and an adjustable tension device. These modifications greatly increase the range of possibilities of the instrument.

Whereas the basic Sansula model is too delicate for use by small children, the Sansula Deluxe can be used in nurseries and music schools without fear of the instrument being easily damaged. The Sansula Deluxe must, however, be handled with the same reasonable care as all musical instruments.

The natural materials used make each of the Deluxe models supplied unique, characterised by an even richer and warmer sound while at the same time being more robust.
