Announcement   Many of our Kalimbas are made with recycled Sardine cans, Cigar boxes and Wine cases, Oil tanks among other things. Even the buzzers on our notes, are made out of recycled soft drink cans and if you look closely you may well recognize the brands that we have integrated into our creations. Every object has a story and the fact that it is reincarnated as a musical instrument is a really wonderful and a fun thing. People do not usually realize the acoustic potential of everyday objects that surround them however many popular instruments of the world were in fact used for different purposes before evolving into musical instruments.

‘Making the most out of objects around us in the spirit of creativity’ is the foundation of Roots Production’s philosophy on recycling.

About

Andrew Masters - Founder of RootsProduction.com - His Story & Vision

Roots Production. It all begins with the first word of the company title, ‘Roots’. It’s a word, a name, a seed, and it has a profound and deep meaning. It’s the key to founder Mr. Andrew Masters’ vision. On the one hand it means the obvious, that part of your everyday, garden-variety plant found in the soil to nourish and support the rest of the plant. It also means the ‘cause or origin of something’. And lastly, it means to establish ‘deeply and firmly’. “Bingo,” I say to myself, “That’s it. This is the meaning Mr. Masters was getting at in the email he sent to me.” It happens to be, in fact, the entire ethos of the company. But, before we delve into the meaning and how it relates to Mr. Masters’ musical instruments and his artwork, we must consider Mr. Masters himself, for the story of Roots Production is largely his story.

Welcome to Roots Production Custom Handmade Musical Instrument Store.

Plant one seed and many roots will grow. Roots productions' first aim is to plant a seed in the heart of our inner child. The thumb piano is the most unimposing of the musical instruments the gentle sound of which touches the pureness of our souls the instant we come into its intimate orbit.

Artist, Musician and Teacher Andrew Masters has been conceptualizing and creating thumb pianos of all shapes and sizes, for over 20 years. Often made from the most surprising and ingenuous recycled materials, these "musical totems" charm people of all ages and stages of development through playfulness of their design, the softness of their touch and of course the magic of their sound. These handmade gems are the keys that will open the doors to the vast world of music that lies within us all.
