These are very sweet kalimbas, with soft, wide tines, modestly spaced, that are easy on young thumbs and beginners of all ages. Key of C.
With 10 notes, this kalimba is actually quite a capable instrument and is able to play a lot of really nice music, including the repertoire of African karimba music.
This kalimba is made from stained mahogany wood. We are back to a circular sound hole – heart-shaped sound holes tend to crack, unfortunately, but the circular holes are less likely. Handsome “Kalimba Magic” wood burning design.
The painted tines help you match the tines to the kalimba tablature. You can get the tines unpainted if you request it.
This kalimba comes with a Free 32 page ebook – “Introduction to the 10-Note Kalimba in C”.
This is a stepping-stone kalimba: everything you learn on this kalimba can be played on the Hugh Tracey Alto kalimbas, or on the new 17-Note kalimbas in C. This kalimba is a step toward a life-long enjoyment of the kalimba. Our 10-Note Kalimba is made in China to Kalimba Magic specifications.
I would also recommend this instrument to anyone who just wanted to start playing kalimba. What a great introduction to the kalimba!
