Box Thumb Piano
Box Thumb Piano – A simple thumb piano design with burnt patterns decorating the resonating board’s surface. This thumb piano has a hollow base which creates a resonating chamber. As the player strikes a tine with their thumb the vibration produced in turn causes the tine’s neighbours to vibrate resulting in a wonderfully complex set of tones.
The tones can also be tuned by loosening the screws and changing the length of the metal. Traditionally, African players tended to use their own idiosyncratic scales but because of the versatility of this item, players can easily tune their piano to a standard western scale.
