The Wizard tuning is reminiscent of the Freygish tuning – a straight harmonic minor without the augmented 6th possibilities. The B11 (with its 11 notes) doesn’t have as many notes as the Freygish Karimba’s 17 tines, and the lower octave is sparsely populated, making the B11 Wizard less capable than the Freygish Karimba, but also easier to navigate and less intimidating.
You have several options for enjoying The Wizard B11 tuning: you could retune your own B11in standard tuning and then purchase the Wizard’s beautiful 36-page instructional download and learn a host of easy spells for your B11 to cast. Or you could send your B11 kalimba in standard tuning to the Kalimba Doctor, and we’ll retune it for you and send it back. Or you could purchase a new B11 or B11 Elektra kalimba in the Wizard exotic tuning, and we’ll include the instructional download as a gift.
