The kalimba is an African musical instrument consisting of a wooden board (often collated with a resonator) with attached staggered metal tines, played by holding the instrument in the hands and plucking the tines with the thumbs. Just need to use two thumbs play to make a sound. The kalimba is produced classified as part of the lamellaphone family, and part of the idiophone family of musical instruments.
Unlike other cheap thumb pianos, this kalimba uses a high-quality solid mahogany wood making of a resonance box and carbon steel making of keys that provide a better sound. Each product has been rigorously tuned before packaging, to ensure the tone is great. And the tone is the same as a piano, for international standard C tune.
Kalimbas are extremely easy to play. You can just pick it up and start playing without having any musical background. The kalimba makes a nice pure sound due to its simple construction. The small design and carrying case ensure that the kalimba can go anywhere.
Handmade: All kalimbas are handmade from high-quality materials, which assure long lifetime and astonishing sound. The kalimba can be played directly. In addition, a music book and course book are included.
How to tune
To tune a kalimba is to actually adjust tines so they have the exact sound they are supposed to, according to which note a tine is designated to play.
1: Tuner: You can use a real tuner or download an App. Android system app: gStrings, Apple system app: Instuner.
2. Tune with a tuning hammer: Making tines longer (from the point where they are held down on the bridge) will lower their pitch, and making them shorter will make their pitch higher.
