We lovingly craft this semantron or talanton from rock-hard maple, which gives a rich intense sound. They are made to order, and the size can vary, but we find around 57 inches long is ideal. This size gives two distinct tones (one an octave above the other) depending on where you strike the instrument. It is provided with a custom-made mallet.

Price: $350
