Roots Production Mini-9 Kalimba
Roots Production Kalimbas are now in stock!
The Mini-9 Kalimba by Roots Production - also called the Zen Zula - is a very sweet instrument. The hand-made flattened tines make this a smooth and easy play, even for fresh thumbs that have never played the kalimba. You have the option of getting a plain brown wood top or a face painted wood top (there is no sound difference).
What a charming instrument! The small body (3" by 5") fits nicely in the hands of children. The smooth tines feel soft on my thumbs.
You have two broad classes of tuning options: we will invent and refine a tuning for you based on how the Mini-9 is already tuned, or you can select one of the "Hang-9 tunings". The Hang-9 tunings require switching out two tines, in order to reach the low notes, so this retuning takes some work - hence the extra charge.
