16 keys diatonic balafon

Our 16 keys diatonic balafons are best for balafonists who appreciate the acoustic performance of a high-quality perfectly tuned instrument. The keys of these balafons are cut from wood from trees which have been dead for years, of which only the duramen (« heart wood ») remains. They are then treated by fire to remove all liquid or bacteriological substances, giving them sustained. warm sounds. Our collection of balafons come from Burkina Faso, Mali or Guinea. They are created by craftsmen whose traditional skills have been passed down for generations from father to son.

Two mallets are supplied with each balafon.
