Balafons for Sale
Going through my collection of instruments recently, and have a couple of really nice traditional balafons from Guinea, West Africa that I’ve decided to put up for sale, and hope that they find a nice home where they will be played and enjoyed. (I’ve collected a lot of musical instruments from my travels in West Africa, and I’d rather see these getting some use than sitting in my attic - don’t worry, I’m still keeping one bala on hand for myself!)
As mentioned, these are good quality, well constructed, and sound/play great. One of these I even retuned myself (you can see the full collection of photos from the process here). Here’s the specs:
DJELI BALA (BALAFON)
Country of Origin: Guinea
