The Magadi Star-13 Kalimba is a larger, diatonic version of the Moon-10 Kalimba. The tines are a bit closer together than the pentatonic Moon-10, making glissandos easier to play on this kalimba. And the diatonic tuning (that is, Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do) makes it melodically and harmonically more powerful.

The resonating frame drum and the floating kalimba embedded in the drum skin gives this kalimba great deep wah-wah effects, a very bright sound, and sustain of the tine vibrations for up to 10 seconds.

And in the G tuning, this instrument just seems right to me. Natural and intuitive. And powerful with the diatonic chording. G is the low note on the Star-13, and it just makes sense for it to be in the key of G, and this retuning makes that true.

Oh, and when you purchase this product, th Star-13 Kalimba in G Tuning, it comes bundled with a 50 page instructional download.

That bundled 50 page download? It has lots of photos, words, and tablature-based instruction for how to play – and UNDERSTAND – the Star-13 Kalimba in G Tuning. To learn more about what exactly is in the download, view the alternate product images, which are four pages from the PDF – including the intro, and table of contents.
