The Sansula belongs to the family of the Kalimba, also known as a thumb piano, and can be played just as easily as your standard kalimba. The instrument has an innovative and patented suspended mounting of the resonating block on a membrane, which gives it such an amazing capability in it's tone and resonance. Since its launching in 2001, the Sansula has quickly become a bestseller and found thousands of friends at home in Germany and abroad. We at Beautiful Sounds agree it is the most beautiful sounding and easy to play kalimba out there!
The special features of the Sansula are not only its unbelievable sound, but also its elegant design. The oval frame of laminated Beech wood is fitted with a membrane which, together with the resonating block, produces a prolonged, warm and soft tone. It's infamous '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 Sansula DELUXE model features a natural goat skin membrane which gives a very nice resonant quality and beautiful natural look to the instrument.
The Sansula comes standard in an A minor tuning with additional tines pitched at B and F., a´, c´´, c´, a´, a, f´, e´, e´´, b´ which allows even the beginner to create wonderful melodies as there is no wrong note, all notes work together harmonically.
