The kalimba had very nice sound and came very nicely packaged and wasn’t broken when I received it. I was very happy with the instrument and would recommend to anyone who is looking to buy a kalimba get this one or any other kalimbas on the website. Overall I’m happy with everything and especially that it came with extra things like a tubing hammer and cleaning cloth.
Gorgeous look and sound, extremely happy with purchase. Thank you!
Beautiful, relaxing sound, very easy to pick up on playing method. Reading music somewhat confusing, having been used to reading regular sheet music for over 65 years, but playing by ear comes naturally.
