Eleven metal tines are precision tuned to 7 notes of the G Major Scale (G A B C D E F#). and so arranged that six shorter tines are above five longer ones, allowing easier playing. The full eleven notes are: G - A - E - D - C - G - D - G - F# - B - A. With access to all the notes of a major scale, many musical possibilities are opened up, while still be intuitive and easy to play. You can make it sound musical easily, resulting in free and relaxing play.

The cellulose resonator membrane adds volume and longevity to the sound. The Renaissance is a further development to the previous versions; featuring a cellulose membrane from renowned American drum company REMO. This instrument will endure changes in humidity fluxuations - a true professional's choice.

What is a Sansula?

A Sansula is an innovative new instrument design from German Company HOKEMA, based on a Kalimba (which itself is a modern version of an Africa Mbira). Metal Tines are played with the thumbs and the sound resonates through the whole body of the instrument, resulting in a fuller and longer lasting tone than a normal Kalimba. A Kalimba is also known as a "Thumb Piano".

Kalimba and Sansulas benefit from using modern, western scales so are more accessible to our western ears than the traditional African versions. Many are tuned to simple scales, making them easy to get started with and to make beautiful, relaxing music straight away. They can be used for meditation, yoga and even performance.

The name "Sansula" is derived from "Sansa", which is another name for a type of "Mbira".

A small family business since 1985, Hokema produce beautiful little instruments from high quality materials. Hand made with passion in Germany.

"Dear Ben Well done on great service (and indeed on a very clear and user-friendly webiste)! The wind chimes arrived on Wed morning. Hopefully the people who get them at Christmas time will be very happy. Thanking you,"

Veronica

"Our kingfisher arrived this morning and is lovely! He's now sitting on his stake in our pond waiting for his wild kin to join him. Like everything else I have bought from you, he more than lives up to his description. Thank you very much indeed, I wish you and your team every continuing success. Regards "

"We ordered the Corinthian Chime Copper 29 inches after we had looked around for a while to get what we wanted. The chimes arrived in a couple of days in a neat presentation box, but I wanted to write to let you know how pleased we were with the chimes. They are really well made but I particularly like the sound from them - it really resonates and sounds just like they do on your website Thanks again"
