What Notes Are on the “17-Note Kalimba in C”

One of my customers asks: “Inside the Treble Kalimba booklet, there’s a picture of the kalimba tines and
the notes written out on a musical staff. Is there such a picture available for
the 17 note kalimba in C?”


The staff doesn’t indicate what clef this is, but it is obviously Treble Clef. How would you know? Well, the low note, C on the kalimba, shows up as “Middle C” on the staff notation, indicating this is indeed Treble Clef!

I suppose I will need to insert this into my next edition of the 17-Note C books.

But perhaps a more important question is: “Why don’t I write books in staff notation?” Well, because that is not how I think when I play kalimba. I explain what I mean in this post:
