The kalimba is modelled after the ancient African musical instrument called mbira. Whereas the mbira originated in central and southern Africa around 1000BC. The varying styles of kalimba and mbira have endured for thousands of years and had numerous layouts, designs, and tunings.
As a result, this instrument produces a warm ethereal sound that feels "like nature in a box". And most importantly, the experience of playing the kalimba will truly help you to relax and unwind. This article talks about why the kalimba is an amazing instrument for everyone!
Need a little help in choosing the right kalimba? Here is a little kalimba buyer's guide made just for you.
*Due to the 'dear shape' of the sound-hole, the last tine high E doesn't resonate much. It's not a quality issue; the rest of the tines sound fantastic and easy to play. If you prefer a kalimba with perfect end tines, we recommend choosing a different design☺️
This Kalimba is made with high-quality Maple wood. In addition to its stunning visual appeal. The tone and sound maple produce are unique because it has incredible strength and is quite dense. Combined with this hollow design makes the ethereal tones last even longer. In addition, keys are made of ore steel tines that provide a bright and clear timbre.
There is no need for any musical background! Because all the notes are engraved on the keys.
To play, simply hold the instrument between the palms, then use your thumbs to pluck the keys. After that, choose an easy kalimba tab from your learning booklet or online, then pluck the corresponding tine according to the numbers on the tab. As a result, you will have a beautiful melody in no time!
This kalimba is pre-tuned in C, therefore you can play it right away when you received the order.
