Acquire a solid wood instrument that preserves nature

A number of poor quality Sanzas are sometimes built on the basis of chipboard. It is, in reality, to pack chips in order to assemble them using synthetic glues harmful to health. At Instruments du Monde, all of our wooden finger pianos are made from raw materials. The Instruments are then more visually pleasing, but in particular, they do not put harmful compounds in the manufacturing methods.
