The traditional African karimba, box-mounted, with pickup.
The Hugh Tracey African Tuned Karimba in A – but mounted on a treble box for a louder sound and more expression. With electronic pickup. The notes on this one are thought to represent the original mbira created some 1300 years ago in southern Africa.
We don’t have sound clips of the Box Karimba + PU, please listen to these sound clips of the acoustic Box Karimba:
You can learn more about the basic instrument at the “How to Play Karimba” Page.
Also available in several tunings: traditional African A; western A major; western A minor; G major (so it can be played with an Alto or Treble in G); or G minor (fits with Bb Treble).
