The Hokema Kalimbas have Gone Electric!

Written by Mark Holdaway, Posted in News and Announcements

Pickups are now available on nearly all Hokemas

The Hokema Kalimbas have Gone Electric!

The kalimba has always been a cool instrument. Different. Ethnic. New Age. Ancient. And just plain fun.

But throw in an electronic pickup, and you can take the kalimba to a whole new level of FUN.

It is a cliche, but the Germans do build things very well - smooth, precise, shiny... and now great sounding pickups for Hokema's beautiful kalimbas.

Thank you, Peter Hokema!

What's New at Kalimba Magic?

Two cool new Hokema Kalimbas, and blond wood Alto Kalimbas

What's New at Kalimba Magic?

We have two interesting new Hokema Kalimbas available: the Hokema Double Sansula, and the Hokema B11, an 11-note kalimba, similar to the Sansula, but in the key of G, and much more adept at making melodies.

We don't yet have video of these kalimbas, but we have some sound recordings within this article, so you can hear what special things they do.
