Internationally renowned kalimba master Kevin Spears has mesmerized audiences around the world with his unique approach to playing kalimba, using effects and innovative tunings.  For a limited time only (until Dec. 31st) we are able to offer the Kevin Spears Style Kalimba which features Kevin's unique tuning exclusively here at KalimbaMagic!

What is the Kevin Spears Style Kalimba? Kalimbaman, Kevin Spears, created the tuning and concept for this instrument: a Hugh Tracey Alto Kalimba with built in pickup, tuned to Mr. Kevin Spears' favorite hip-bluesy-funky A minor based tuning. We thank him from the bottom of our hearts, but also more tangibly in the form of a royalty for each KSSK we sell.

Maurice White brought the kalimba into western pop music with the A minor pentatonic tuning. Kevin Spears takes the kalimba one step further with his own innovative tuning.

Included with the KSSK is a two-sided info sheet with the KSSK tuning, chords, and the scale that it plays.

The Kevin Spears Style Kalimba (KSSK) can be purchased here.
