This kalimba is a great blend of cool magic tricks (from the wah wah, and from the way the notes are laid out), and shear capability. Do you want to just wave your thumbs around and have cool-sounding music pop out as if by magic? CHECK! Do you want to be able to play the tines with precision and have beautiful arrangements come forth through your careful practice and work? CHECK. Heads up – I don’t have a book for this kalimba YET, but i will have in about a month’s time. You will be able to find the book and other instructional resources for this kalimba here at the Star-13 Kalimba Resource Page.
By the way, this kalimba is made by Magadi, a new Chinese kalimba maker that has made it their stated mission to be the makers of the best professional level kalimbas. This instrument is certainly in step in the direction of Magadi achieving their dreams.
