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.

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.
