The LUDOPHONES™ are the REGENERATIONS OF TRADITIONAL ANCIENT SHOWING INSTRUMENTS (kalimba, psalterion & musical bow) and mainly of XVIIIth and XIXth centuries editing (metallic harps and euphone). Sculptural in appearance, they are real musical instruments! The keyboards are tuned on the same mode - natural harmonic mode - to allow sound exploration and musical interpretation! Thanks to you, they evolve every year!

Are you tired of synthetic sound, "Made in China" lead-painted triangles and coloured bisphenol A tubes? You think that patients or your children have difficulties to express themselves and to blossom in contact with the "grat-grat" and the phthalate sistres, zinc metallophones? Join the 1,200 establishments for whom and with whom LUDOPHONES are designed and develop !
