    Kigonki - Modèle Lulu - Handswani Si

    Sale

    Kigonki Lulu - Model Handswani B - With bag & mallets The Kigonki "Lulu" is a top quality steel tongue drum with 8 notes on both sides of the instrument. Tuned to an B Overtone scale: B - C# - D# - F# - A# - B - C# - D#. ✚ Sold in its padded bag with a pair of rubber mallets From the family of "Steel Tongue Drum", the Kigonki is a completely intuitive melodic percussion instrument that can be played by anyone, even without any prior musical knowledge. Completely handmade in Spain, this high quality instrument is made of a steel drum in which are cut out sound blades and can be played either directly with the hands or with suitable sticks . This model "Lulu" presents a unique tuning concept with 8 notes cut on each side of the instrument (16 blades total), which offer exceptional sustain, beat and harmonic richness. Indeed, its two faces are tuned according to the same harmonic range but with a very slight offset between them, which generates a tremolo effect and significantly increases the volume of the instrument. This acoustic response is immediate and totally hypnotic! The "Lulu" illustrates perfectly the benefit of such a subtle "detune", which manages to create new tones, similar to harmonized voices emanating from the body of the instrument itself. Thus, it has not only 8 notes, but rather multiple frequencies, whose interactions between the different layers of harmonics inspire fluctuation and movement, and generate a "cosmic" sound. Moreover, the instrument benefits from a very neat, changing and colorful aesthetic, unique to each Kigonki: a pleasure for the eyes as much as for the ears, which participates in the joy to play this instrument of a very high quality .

    Violon ancien allemand fait main

    Sale

    Hand made ancient German violin. Pleasant in appearance with orange-red varnish, it features a two-piece wavy maple back measuring 35.7 cm. Fingerboard and ankles in ebony. The bridge is signed P. Barthel-Paris. The violin, on the other hand, carries no mark inside. This violin is in very good state of preservation. Note a bottom seal that presents a small lack of varnish under the tailpiece. It probably had to be glued back at some point in the past. A good deal for this nice violin.
