Accessories

These accessories provide proper solutions for different needs and disabilities. Playing may be adjusted by particular handles, by a simpler set-up of 3 keys instead of the standard 5 keys, and by additional supportive equipment.

E-BOX

Arcana can be adjusted to accommodate those with different physical abilities. Even those who use their feet, mouth or other parts of the body. The E-Box enriches the instrument further. By connecting to different switches and sensors using the E-Box, players with certain physical or cognitive difficulties can benefit from a playing experience that is suited specifically for their needs. The E-Box has six inputs; 5 that can be used to replace the 5 keys, and another one which can replace the strum stick. The E-box enables connectivity with standard switches and sensors that are in frequent use by people who have various disabilities. In addition, external switches, such as movement sensors, light sensors can also be used, so that anyone can play the Arcana Strum comfortably.

3 Keys

  • The 3 Keys set is an alternative version of the standard Arcana keyboard (that has a set of 5 keys). People with cognitive and physical difficulties can use the 3 keys set instead of the 5 keys set. This simplifies the learning and playing experience significantly. Changing from 5 keys to 3 keys is very simple - the keys are attached to the instrument by magnets, so changing them is quick and easy. Playing in 3 keys limits the note range and makes playing simpler by reducing the amount of octaves from  3 octaves to 1.5 octaves. In addition, the 3 keys mode consist of 7 chords only, as opposed to the 25 chords available in the standard 5 keys mode. It is important to emphasize that the 7 chords correspond to the 7 notes found on each scale. This makes a range of chords that is wide enough for users to enjoy a satisfying playing experience. After changing to 3 keys (which are larger and wider) and making sure the 3 keys switch located on the back of the instrument is activated, the user can start playing right away!

Flat Handle

The flat handle is similar to the bonded-strip handle – it secures the hand or foot. The main difference is its small size and its flatter shape. It is a great accessory that allows more flexibility, so players can use their arm, wrist or elbow freely, while strumming.

Ball Handle

This strum-stick handle has a ball styled handle. It's smaller than a golf ball, and is identical to the handle used in motorized wheelchairs. It can be grasped fully with the palm of the hand. Some people have difficulties playing with a large handle due to tight muscle tone they experience, therefore, playing with this smaller strum-stick can be more comfortable for them. It is suitable for those who have trouble opening their hand, those with limited finger control or even those who can only control the base of their wrist.
