The clear and beautiful toned Treble Kalimba, with an electronic pickup (PU) installed.
The 17-note Treble Kalimba comes in the key of G, starting on the 3rd (B) and going up 2.5 octaves to a D. This model has been extensively copied by other manufacturers outside of Africa. The Hugh Tracey Treble Kalimba is a superior musical instrument with level tines that rarely give you problems.

The Treble Kalimba is a nice match for duets with the Alto Kalimba, as you can hear in my Christmas Kalimba CD. There are now several books and instructional downloads for the Treble Kalimba.
