    Sansula Renaissance

    $208.00

    Durable Plastic Top.

    Do you want the biggest, deepest kalimba affect in the world, with an instrument that almost plays itself? The Sansula may be your instrument.

    This is a truly delicate sounding instrument. Imagine going into a secret room that nobody but you knows about, a place where your soul can be renewed as you surround your mind and heart with mystical beauty. That’s what playing this instrument feels like!

    The coolest thing about the Sansula is the way it vibrates on the body.  The sound chamber may be placed anywhere on the body.  It also produces the “wah wah” sound.

    You get the wah-wah effect by lifting it up and putting it back down on a table, or a board or book on your lap.

    The Sansula’s standard tuning is an A minor chord, with a few other notes thrown in. Everything you play will have a unique mystical and haunting beauty, whether you know anything about music or not.

    Freenote Xylophone Am

    $365.00

    FreeNotes are designed so that people at all experience levels can play music. The idea for this instrument was influenced by the gamelan sounds of Java and Bali. The FreeNotes are a hybrid of xylophone and vibraphone, and have an amazing tone.  The tone of the FreeNotes is so pure, and is extremely relaxing.

    They are tuned to the pentatonic scale, so you can’t play a bad note.  Even if you are not a musician, FreeNotes can be a great instrument to use because of how easy they are to play, and how relaxing the sound is.

    It comes with two mallets, which two people could each use one and play together. This could make for a unique and fun way to interact with your child, while making beautiful music!

    Hardwood Drum

    $795.00

    African Podauk and English Sycamore – D#

    Baby Chorded, 12 key

    “The drawing of sound from wood is among the oldest and most primal manifestations of human communication and musical expression. When we hear it we are given with a sense of wonder and delight. 

    The acoustic aesthetic of wood is enchanting.  It is the warmest sound and only carries even harmonics.

    The wood is tuned for the simple purpose of hearing it ring and putting some songfulness to its voice. The creator does it to please his self, knowing it will have a similar effect upon others.

    These works of art are the tangible and audible artifacts of an ongoing process of discovery.

    Rav Vast B Celtic Double Ding

    $888.00

    Beginners will love this scale as it is very melodic and easy to handle. Seasoned musicians will appreciate the harmonious sound of the instrument, the ease to improvise and the increased number of notes that give more room for experiments.

    This scale is tuned in B and has an additional A-bass note. Like a two-side coat which is bright and colorful from the outside and dark from the inside, the B Celtic has two sides. You can choose between the two moods – the cheerful A major and the moody B minor – by switching the keynote of the melody.

    Rav Vast G Pygmy

    $888.00

    Enjoy the deep and mystical sound when playing the G Pygmy RAV Vast. This scale was inspired by severe primaeval nature. The sound of the G Pygmy will take you to the places where the spirits of nature live.

    This scale is a deep beautiful minor scale. Advanced players will enjoy the opportunity to choose between the major and minor feel and create highly contrasting compositions.
