It is the end of an era - Steve Catania has retired, and the good quality, inexpensive Catania Kalimbas are almost gone. Most stores that carried them are completely out. But at Kalimba Magic, because of a very large earlier order, we still have plenty of 6-Note Catania kalimbas in stock.
Why did I order so many 6-Note kalimbas? Here is a tale: The 6-Note came about because I saw a glaring need for a simple, small kalimba, and I suggested that Steve Catania make the 6-Note. Which he did. Perfect for beginners and small children, this beautiful, diminutive instrument has lots of space between tines, so you almost never play the wrong tine by accident. It has a 1-octave range, but uses the pentatonic (5-note) scale. It is simple, easy, and it sounds great.
