Sansula - incredible Mbira Thumb Piano - stunning sound
The special feature of the Sansula is its unbelievable sound.
The oval frame of laminated beechwood is fitted with a membrane which, together with the resonating block, produces a prolonged, soft tone.
An impressive ‘wah-wah’ effect can be produced by holding the instrument against the body, on the thigh or laying it on a table and then alternately raising and lowering it while playing.
The tuning – in a-minor with additional tines pitched at B and F – allows wonderful melodies to be produced almost of their own accord, simply by plucking the tines with the thumbs. As all the notes harmonise with each other, beginners also enjoy immediate success with their instrument.
