A lovely and unique "dot painted" thumb piano with seven metal prongs also known as tines. The characteristic sound of this traditionally African instrument is produced by striking the tines with ones thumbs.
This thumb piano is mounted on a polished coconut resonating chamber which allows for louder and more harmonically interesting tones.
The pitch of the tines can be altered by loosening the screws and changing the length of the prongs, allowing the player to create their own scales.
With its bright and colourful dot painting, this is a very attractive item that sounds great and is easy and fun to play.
Please Note: These Pattern Of The Hand Dot Painting does vary as no two are the same.
