Kalimbas and Sansulas
Anyone can immediately begin to play the handy Kalimbas: due to the pre-tuned scales, wonderful enchanting melodies are created.
HOKEMA has stood for high-quality musical instruments since 1985. The firm, based in the small town of Walsrode, Germany develops and produces unique sound wonders: Kalimbas and Sansulas.
The warm, soft and gently relaxing sounds of the Kalimbas are harmonious in and of themselves, as well as when accompanying other instruments. Anyone can immediately sit down and play the handy Kalimbas. The pre-tuned scales create wonderful and enchanting melodies.
Today the family firm - now in its second generation, with 9 employees - is one of the leading producers worldwide of various models of attractive and easily-playable Kalimbas. The Kalimbas are made exclusively in Germany, crafted out of high quality wood and treated with non toxic oils ( linseed) .
The instruments are produced sustainably in the Walsrode production facility, which is fully powered by solar roof panels.
The Metal Sounds Team
"Using specific tools, we offer a full range of Spacedrum designed and assembled with great care from selected stainless steel sheets (special alloy), using some mechanical process. The tuning, it is an art. This know-how acquired along the years is a guarantee of quality that we can now produce reliable and sound instruments."
Metal Sounds customers tend to be musicians, therapists, music schools, and ordinary people who enjoy their unique metallic, melodic percussion instruments.
“Feeltone stands for sensuous sound instruments and intuitive play.”
Feeltone has been making musical instruments since 1980.
Tongue drums, monochords and monochord furniture are the core of feeltone’s line of high quality, primarily hand-crafted instruments.
Fun and easy to play, these instruments were designed for musicians and non-musicians alike. One can play them not only for musical enjoyment but also to support the healing work of music and sound therapists, sound healers, sound massage, and the like.
Feeltone was started by the inspired instrument maker and designer, Ingo Böhme.
Today Ingo, his work partner and wife Martina-Gläser-Böhme, and the feeltone team, live and work in the small village of Pulow in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany, an area where a whole network of musicians, craftspeople and artists reside and engage in purposeful sustainable living.
