The Moon-10 is a new (2020) kalimba from Magadi. A solid resonant block “floats” on the goat skin membrane to produce a rich and resonant sound. The notes on this magical kalimba sustain for a full 10 seconds! Wow.

The Desert Moon Tuning is an enchanting Middle Eastern tuning that is exotic and enchanting. The 6-note scale means that the octaves don’t switch sides, so the entire right side tines make the A major chord, and the entire left side tines make the G minor chord. This tuning will engender new ways of playing… or if you try playing with your old tried-and-true thumb patterns, totally new music will come out.

The Moon-10 comes with a black padded case to keep it protected on your travels, and a tablature-based 24-page color manual to help you on your kalimba journey. But the big thing you get with this Desert Moon tuned Moon-10 Kalimba is the 37-page PDF that shows you how to play dozens of songs in this most useful tuning.
