Rich Sound with a delicate membrane. For Adults If you are looking for a sturdier model you can chose the Sansula Renaissance or the tunable Sansula Deluxe.

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 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.

allows even the beginner to create melodies as there is no wrong note, all notes work together harmonically.

Every notated exercise is available as a MP3 file, on the MP3-CD as well as in the corresponding online-library. Numerous external video and audio examples, linked by QR codes, will give you a deeper insight into the presented material


Watch Videos and Listen to the different tunings and use our Tunning Tool 

We have compiled a couple of videos showing you different tuning flavors and how to tune steps, for your B9 or Sansulas.

The tuning tool has an indention on the top so you can securely place it at the end of the tine. Then it won't slide when you use a hammer to tap the tuning tool and push the tines in or out.
We show you how its done in the videos plus you get to hear the different tuning suggestions.
