The hot, sensual, nostalgic, mysterious and sweet Freygish karimba, with a built in pickup (PU).

The Freygish-tuned Karimba is one of SaReGaMa’s troicha of tunings – right next to the Air and Lotus tuned Karimbas. The Freygish scale is a middle eastern tuning, but if you know about music, a simpler description of the tuning is: two octaves of the C harmonic minor scale, plus a low B and a high D bracketing those two octaves.

This one comes with an electronic pickup with a 1/4 inch jack – plug it in to your amp or effects processor and play loud while having fun!

This tuning is the most regular (ie, most predictable, most understandable, and in some ways most playable) of SaReGaMa’s three tunings.
