Hokema - Sansula Deluxe
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.
While 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 care as all musical instruments.
The tuning – 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 harmonize with each other, beginners also enjoy immediate success with their instruments.
The natural materials used in crafting each of the Deluxe models engender an even richer and warmer sound, while also being more robust. A great instrument for all age groups.

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.
