After years of working with koras, repairing and experimenting, Adam made our first kora for sale in 2007. We have been developing and improving them ever since. They have evolved with different woods and finishes, improved string spacings, a variety of skins, advanced building techniques and subtle refinements. See below for more details.
We have dedicated years to producing the very best instruments and we’re proud of their quality and of our reputation. We only make koras, nothing else.
Our koras cost from 600€ to over 2000€ with the price reflecting among other things, the amount of work needed to source and work the wood, as well as an array of optional extras. We have always tried to ensure that there are affordable koras available but we will never make ‘cheap’ koras. Instead we are producing a Budget Kora where all the hardware is of the same quality, but without the hours of labour and years of skill that Adam puts into our main range.
