Kalimba 'Sansula' - Ake Bono / D minor Japan
The Sansula consists of a small kalimba with a solid cherry wood body, mounted on a synthetic resonance skin, itself stretched over an oval beech frame. It is equipped with 9 stainless steel blades, staggered in length and organized on 2 keyboards (5 at the bottom and 4 at the top), perfectly tuned to the 440 Hz tuning fork.
One of the specificities of this Sansula is the possibility of producing a very interesting "Wah-Wah" effect. This requires placing the instrument on a flat surface such as a table or even the knees, then lifting it slightly by pulling it apart and bringing it closer to this support, while playing.
The sonority of the Sansula is exceptional, both sweet and powerful, bewitching.
We offer you different tunings, each with their own character, to best suit your desires and your projects.
This one is a D minor tuning inspired by the Japanese Ake Bono scale, which gives an easily identifiable Asian character to this Sansula.
