Thumbnail Filmstrip of Thumb Piano Images
Discontinued, February 2019
We will continue to offer blueprints and hardware so you can build your own thumb piano.
This is a very musical little box! Pluck the metal prongs with your thumbs to play melodies. Native Africans made this kind of instrument from gourds with cane prongs, but this modern version is much more durable and clear-sounding--not just a toy!
- 15 prongs, 2 octaves
- Laminated birch top, laminated back, solid sides & bridge
- 5 1/2" wide 7 1/2" long
