What Difference Between Wood Kalimba and Acrylic Kalimba?
They play the same way but slightly different in sound. Flat-board design kalimba normally has less volume than box-shaped kalimba, and acrylic is quieter than wood, which we recommend acrylic kalimba as an indoor instrument. In terms of tonality, acrylic kalimba has the sweetest and vibrant sound, sounds like a crystal music box.
