Hokema Kalimba Sansula Renaissance

Hokema Kalimba Sansula Renaissance

by Hokema Kalimbas
$208.00
We have developed the Sansula Renaissance to combine the best features of our other models in one.
While the basic Sansula instrument has a relatively delicate membrane, the Renaissance is fitted with a robust synthetic REMO drumskin.

The Renaissance is resistant to moisture, so it retains its tension under conditions of varying air humidity and thus also retains its wonderful sound. For all age groups.
Most importantly, the Sansula Renaissance has inherited the indescribable sounds of the Sansula Klassik.
The tuning of the instrument, in a-minor with additional b and f, allows wonderful melodies to be produced, almost by themselves, by plucking the tines with the thumbs.
Optisch unterscheidet sich das neue Modell durch eine abgerundete Holzkante auf der Oberseite des Instruments.

by Hokema Kalimbas
$132.00
The Sansula belongs to the family of the Kalimba and can be played just as easily. The instrument, with its patented suspended mounting of the resonating block, is an innovation entirely of our own design. Since its launching in 2001, the Sansula has quickly become a bestseller and found thousands of friends at home and abroad. The special feature of the Sansula is its unbelievable sound. Whereby the clear and aesthetic design is most appealing. The oval frame of laminated beechwood is fitted with a membrane which, together with the resonating block, produces a prolonged, soft tone. Furthermore, 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 A minor with additional tines pitched at B and F., a´, c´´, c´, a´, a, f´, e´, e´´, b´
allows even the beginner to create melodies as there is no wrong note, all notes work together harmonically.

The B9, as we call it, is a small, handy kalimba with a solid resonance corpus of American cherrywood. It is the ‘sister’ of the B7 model.

The vibrations of the nine tines can be easily felt in the hands.

The tuning of the Kalimba B9 is identical to that of the Sansula. It is in a-minor with additional tines tuned to B and F. As all the notes harmonise with each other, beginners also enjoy immediate success with their instrument.

Here is what some of our customer say about the Monolina:

"The Monolini is a beautifully crafted intuitive instrument that is perfect for sound healing with vocal improv groups because it creates a magical music bed over which delicious harmonies can be created. It so easily produces enchanting  overtones that a person playing it can simultaneously sit in a meditative state and keep the strings sounding with little effort. People are incredibly drawn to this lovely portable monochord whenever I give workshops."

-Joule L'adara, founder of Sounding Circles LLC

 

As a music therapist, I know about the incredible therapeutic value of sound and vibration. I uses the monochord to begin and end her yoga classes, massage therapy sessions, and guided meditations. Because we synchronize with our sonic environment- a principle called "entrainment"- the monochord is a powerful tool that induces a parasympathetic response, reducing heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, pulse and brainwave activity. It facilitates a shift from the busy thinking and doing states to a calm feeling and being state, thereby promoting relaxation and preparing her clients to enter and receive deep healing through yoga, bodywork and meditation."

Hokema Kalimbas  Sansula Deluxe

Hokema Kalimbas Sansula Deluxe

by Hokema Kalimbas
$261.00
The Sansula Deluxe is a further development of our basic Sansula model. In response to the wishes expressed by many customers, we have fitted it with a robust membrane of genuine goatskin and an adjustable tension device. These modifications greatly increase the range of possibilities of the instrument.

Whereas the basic Sansula model is too delicate for use by small children, the Sansula Deluxe can be used in nurseries and music schools without fear of the instrument being easily damaged. The Sansula Deluxe must, however, be handled with the same reasonable care as all musical instruments.

The tuning – 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.

The natural materials used make each of the Deluxe models supplied unique, characterised by an even richer and warmer sound while at the same time being more robust. For all age groups.

Hokema  B11  Kalimba Melody

Hokema B11 Kalimba Melody

by Hokema Kalimbas
$81.00

Kalimbas are metal-tined instruments which originated in southern Africa and which can be found there in countless variations.
Our Kalimba B 11 ‘Melody’ is made of solid American black cherry wood and meticulously hand-crafted. The surfaces are treated and polished with natural oils and waxes. The 11 tines are precisely tuned to the scale of G- Major, so that a large number of well-known songs can be played. The ‘Melody’ is also ideal for improvisation and intuitive playing.
We have positioned the long and short tines alternately to ensure ease of playing and in accordance with acoustic criteria.
The six shorter tines have been bent so that their ends are raised above the level of the longer ones so that they can easily be reached by the thumbs. When playing from the low to the high tones, the five long tines are plucked alternately by the thumbs beginning in the middle and moving outwards - the right thumb begins on Tine No. 6 – then the six shorter tines follow, also played from the middle outwards, whereby the left thumb begins on Tine No. 5.
Tabulature
The eleven tines are numbered from left to right. The even numbers 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 represent the longer tines with the lower tones, the odd numbers stand for the shorter, bent tines with the higher tones. Normally – for single-voice melodies – the left thumb (L) plays the tines 1-6 and the right thumb (R) plays numbers 6-11.



Hokema Kalimba B7

Hokema Kalimba B7

by Hokema Kalimbas
$63.50
The Kalimba B7 is the ‘sister’ of the B9 and is likewise a small and handy instrument with a solid resonance corpus of American cherrywood.
The measurements of both instruments are the same but the tuning, number and breadth of the tines differ.

Due to the deeper tones of the seven pentatonically-tuned tines, the vibrations are felt particularly strongly in the hands. For this reason, the B7 is especially favoured by therapists.
The tuning of the Kalimba B7 is pentatonic C.
Tuning ex works (can be varied): e ́, g , d ́, e , c ́, a , a ́
The sounds produced are therefore always in harmony and so beginners also enjoy immediate success with their instrument.

The sound of the instrument can be amplified by laying it on or sticking it onto a tabletop or the skin of a drum.

Hokema Twin Kalimba

Hokema Twin Kalimba

by Hokema Kalimbas
$131.00
Twin Kalimba
Twin – the double B9 kalimba
The Twin is 30cm (12‘‘) long and is fitted with two identically-tuned sets of tines so the instrument can be played by either one or two persons.

Playing solo
Hold the Twin in both hands so that each thumb can reach one of the sets of tines. The thumbs can now play the nine tones on both sides of the instrument.
A full sound, rich in overtones, is created due to the identical tuning of both sets of tines: each tone has its twin on the other side which then resonates when its ‘brother’ is plucked. By plucking alternately with both thumbs, quite other tone sequences can be produced than on a single kalimba with the same tuning. The advanced kalimba player can play a wide range of other scales simply by retuning individual tones.
Playing duo
The real motive leading to the development of the Twin was the wish to have an instrument with which a sound experience could be shared by therapist/patient, couples, family members, friends etc. The identical tun- ing of the two sets of tines guarantees harmonious tone sequences and sounds. The resonance of the tones is picked up by the wooden corpus and can be physically felt by the partner.
The kalimba stays in tune when being played but the tuning can be changed if desired. Tones on the two sides of the instrument which differ from but nevertheless harmonize with each other are thus also possible.

The Koshi chime is an authentic musical instrument, an original creation of high quality. Hand made in our workshop at the foot of the Pyrenean mountains, each chime is the result of meticulous craftsmanship. Eight chords are welded with silver into the metal plate at the base of the resonance tube. Precise tuning creates a play of clear tones that is rich in overtones. The overtones of the shorter chords gradually dominate and become fundamentals, thus forming a circular tone range. Move the chime gently holding it by its cord: the crystalline relaxing sound may leave you in quiet wonder. Suspended, it will play with the wind and carry you away in an unexpected melody. The sound of the chimes is most wonderful for children. But for security reasons they should be kept out of reach of children under three years old. The Koshi chimes work best for outdoors use.

Here is what one of our customer has to say about the Monolini's:

 I have been working with the Body Monochord from feeltone ( the previous Model of the Monolini Serie) since over 6 years in therapeutic settings as a Music and Sound therapist. The cliental I am working with are persons with severe multiple disabilities, dementia patients and persistent vegetative state patients.

The new Monolini Quint Monochord offer me to further extend these areas of application. What convinced me above all else was the exceptional structural shape of the new models. ( Monolini, Monolina). This shape allows me and my client to position the instrument easily and exactly onto the chosen  part of the body, which is not possible with other kinds of body monochords.

Especially for people  with severe multiple disabilities , who can not assume a normal laying down position because of their handicaps, it is important to be able to position the body monochord exactly at a chosen body space with ease.

This monochord will not slide when it is played, which will happen with other models that I did try out. The built of the Monolini/Monlina  allows me to optimally play and place it on a variety of body sizes, forms and positions.

The Monolin Quinten monochord stands out with its brilliant sound. This small and lightweight monochord has an unusual large sound volume, which pleasantly surprised me. Because of its different tuning and variation of its string, it allows me to create different moods and effects with my clients.

 The beautiful craftsmanship and wood of the instrument creates a wonderful 'look and feel' effect and haptic interactions. It is a joy and pleasure to work with this instrument.

I use the Monolini Quiten monochord in my treatments receptive and /or active  depending of the needs of my clients.  

The instrument is robust enough to allow my clients to actively play the monochord and create sounds that are deeply touching. The different strings allows the client to play a diversified and surprisingly multifaceted sound carpet. If you add little wooden sticks you can add even more variety, improvisation and sounds.

 I also use the Monolin Quitenmonochord with Sound journeys, sound meditations, therapeutical chanting and singing. The Monlini Quitenmonochors is a truly small and strong Allrounder.”

Now also our Mini Kalimbas are available in an electro version. We suggest you use a 6.3mm cabel and a right angle connector , cable and connector not included.

Kalimbas are metal-tined instruments which originated in southern Africa and which can be found there in countless variations.
Our Kalimba B 11 ‘Melody’ is made of solid American black cherry wood and meticulously hand-crafted. The surfaces are treated and polished with natural oils and waxes. The 11 tines are precisely tuned to the scale of G- Major, so that a large number of well-known songs can be played. The ‘Melody’ is also ideal for improvisation and intuitive playing.
We have positioned the long and short tines alternately to ensure ease of playing and in accordance with acoustic criteria.
The six shorter tines have been bent so that their ends are raised above the level of the longer ones so that they can easily be reached by the thumbs. When playing from the low to the high tones, the five long tines are plucked alternately by the thumbs beginning in the middle and moving outwards - the right thumb begins on Tine No. 6 – then the six shorter tines follow, also played from the middle outwards, whereby the left thumb begins on Tine No. 5.
Tabulature
The eleven tines are numbered from left to right. The even numbers 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 represent the longer tines with the lower tones, the odd numbers stand for the shorter, bent tines with the higher tones. Normally – for single-voice melodies – the left thumb (L) plays the tines 1-6 and the right thumb (R) plays numbers 6-11.

The Kalimba B7 is the ‘sister’ of the B9 and is likewise a small and handy instrument with a solid resonance corpus of American cherrywood. 

The measurements of both instruments are the same but the tuning, number and breadth of the tines differ.

Due to the deeper tones of the seven pentatonically-tuned tines, the vibrations are felt particularly strongly in the hands. For this reason, the B7 is especially favoured by therapists.
The tuning of the Kalimba B7 is pentatonic C.
Tuning ex works (can be varied): e ́, g , d ́, e , c ́, a , a ́
The sounds produced are therefore always in harmony and so beginners also enjoy immediate success with their instrument.

The sound of the instrument can be amplified by laying it on or sticking it onto a tabletop or the skin of a drum.
