Sapele Kora

Sapele Kora

800 850 

A 21 (or optionally 22) string kora made with Sapele wood for the neck, handles and crossbar, with a Bubinga bridge and pad.  We use chrome Gotoh enclosed machine heads on all of our koras.

All timbers vary from tree to tree in terms of grain and colour and Sapele is no exception.  It is lighter in weight than Bubinga or Keno.  See About Our Koras for more details on the materials we use and the processes.

Delivery and Payment 

Please note: this year 2021 we do not plan to return to Europe from Senegal until July and any kora orders cannot be completed until then.  We have removed the deposit requirement, but please do place an order if you are happy to wait.  I will be in touch.


Bass Heads

Replace up to six machine (treble) heads with bass heads for the lowest strings.
