Deze (mbira resonator)

The deze is the low-tech amplifier for your mbira, and we have 2 sizes available, made in Zimbabwe. Place your mbira in the deze with the bottom edge of the board near the edge of the deze.  Use a stick (“mutsigo”) to wedge the mbira in tightly, with the bottom of the stick on the top edge of the bar holding down the keys. Hollow bamboo about 1/2″ to 3/4″ (1-2 cm) wide is the best, but any stick will do.

Sorry, dezes are out of stock but we expect more to arrrive by sometime in June.  Contact us to get on the waiting list for the color/size you prefer.
