The Sansa-Rimba is a bright, stimulating and colourful teaching and music resource and would be a great addition as school playground equipment, perfect for a care home garden or musical trail.
This outdoor musical instrument is a clever blend of two African instruments; the Sansa (thumb-piano) and a Marimba (xylophone). Using the diatonic scale and spanning two octaves (C4-C6), the 15 notes of the Sansa-Rimba are arranged as a traditional thumb-piano with the scale ascending from the centre outwards.
The Sansa-Rimba can be built with individual notes or keys are available in three different materials each of which gives its own distinct sound when played: Sansa-Rimba Mysteria: Black resonators with aluminium notes Sansa-Rimba Bellatta: Indigo blue resonators with GRP notes Sansa Rimba Saxata: Orange resonators with hardwood notes.
There are no wires or strings as the notes are individually and securely attached to the resonators for maximum vibration with incredible tones and resonance.
The instrument is designed for ground or surface installation, but can also be wall mounted.
The Sansa-Rimba is easy to play and a perfect introduction to musical exploration and improvisation.
High-Use We have designed heavy-duty versions of several our instruments; ideal for high use or unsupervised applications, where less durable fixtures and fittings may suffer from wear and tear.
Heavy-duty versions have black anodized aluminium resonators instead of the coloured ABS with polyurethane caps on the end of each resonator.
The notes are securely mounted onto high density poly-ethylene back-boards. Finally, stainless steel security fixings offer unparalleled durability.

I should like to commend the quality of the equipment and the ease with which it was installed. The team who were responsible for the installation worked hard and were aware of how to behave on school premises and the health & safety requirements.
