The Wah Wah Effect :
Wah Wah for People with Small Hands

In order to have an effective wah, you must cover a significant part of the sound hole, but people with small thumbs have difficulty doing this. I advise people with small hands to use the Treble over the Alto kalimba, as the Treble has a smaller wah wah hole. You might also consider using some sort of prosthetic device, e.g., tape a small disk made from card stock to your thumb! Well, you can experiment. Write me and tell me what works for you!
