It is a fun sound maker but unfortunately not much more for me. The "tounges" are angled in a way witch makes it hard to get a nice grip with my big fingers and the dreamy scale it is tuned in is not very practical, you can change the tuning with the right tools though. It is also quite quiet witch makes it impractical in recordings with non contact microphones.
i like the sound and product quality very mutch there is no bad experience with this products for hobby playing, makes you calm with the sound of kalimba
I bought this Kalimba for a school production of Lion King to use for some sound effects. It was cheap but sounded great. Using it on top of a Djembe drum to amplify the sound it really had a traditional and magical sound to it.
It was everything we needed and more. I have since used it in a recording for an ambient dance track.
i would buy this and many others. You can slightly unscrew the kalimba and tune the 'Tongues' to your liking.
A constant source of inspiration

Here's a simple instrument, almost like a toy. Yet it's possibilities are endless when mixed together with electronic ambiances and synth-based melodies. Perfect for low-tempo vibes with an acoustic touch, recorded with reverb and delay. Enjoy!
