We have developed the Sansula Renaissance to combine the best features of all our other models into one. 

While the basic Sansula has a relatively delicate exterior (membrane), the Renaissance is fitted with a robust synthetic REMO drum skin. The basic model has a black rubber tension string around the base, while the Renaissance has a raised wooden rim.

The Renaissance is moisture-resistant, and retains its tension under conditions of varying air humidity, thus also retaining its wonderful sound. Most importantly, the Sansula Renaissance has inherited the indescribable sounds of the Sansula Classic. 

The tuning of the instrument, in A-minor with B and F, allows beautiful melodies to be produced, almost by themselves. This is great instrument for all age groups.

  • Bag reinforced with fiberglass
  • Fully padded on the inside



  • with resonator top for the wah-wah effect on the go
  • Adjustable shoulder-strap

Plug in your Kalimba and amplify your music. The Melody Electro is the Kalimba B11 Melody plus electric receiver. We suggest you use a 6.3 mm cable and a right angle connector. Cable and connector not included.

Kalimbas are metal-tined instruments which originated in southern Africa and which can be found there in countless variations.

Our Kalimba B11 Melody was meticulously hand-crafted out of solid American black cherry wood. The surfaces were treated and polished with natural oils and waxes. The 11 tines were precisely tuned to the scale of G Major, suitable for playing countless popular tunes. The Melody is ideal for improvisation and intuitive playing.

Tablature

We positioned the long and short tines alternately to ensure ease of playing in accordance with acoustic criteria. The six shorter tines are bent -  with the ends raised above the longer tines - enabling easy reach by the thumbs.

The eleven tines are numbered from left to right. The even numbers 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 represent the longer tines and the odd numbers represent the shorter. Generally – for single-voice melodies – the left thumb (L) plays tines 1-6 and the right thumb (R) plays 6-11.
