The African thumb piano, or kalimba is a percussion instrument consisting of a number of thin metal blades (keys) mounted on a soundbox or soundboard. Sometimes they're made with a sound hole in the middle, sometimes they're made from solid wood.
Our Solid Kalimbas are stable instruments that are extra comfortable to hold and are made of great different woods.
The traditional soundhole of these Kalimbas creates warmer tones and a longer sustain. Besides, we incorporated wonderful designs for you around the soundhole.
Our pickup models feature an integrated pickup and high-quality quarter-inch output jack to amplify the instrument whenever you need to.
Wah-wah Kalimbas have a body-oriented soundhole so you can create a great wah-wah effect while playing by simply bouncing the Kalimba body on and off your belly which creatively moves the sound.
This miniature size instrument is an excellent gift idea and gives you a first insight into the exciting world of Kalimbas.
