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. Some kalimbas have a sound hole in the middle, some are made from solid wood and some can produce a soothing Wah-wah sound.
Our Solid Kalimbas are stable instruments that are extra comfortable to hold andmade of great different woods. They offer a sustained and warm sound due to the resonance of the entire body.
The traditional soundhole of these Kalimbas creates warm tones and a long sustain. You can choose from wonderful wood and design options.
Pickup kalimbas feature an integrated pickup and high-quality quarter-inch output jack to amplify the instrument.
Create the wah-wah-effect by simply bouncing the Kalimba body on and off your belly which creatively moves the sound.
These miniature-sized instruments are excellent gift ideas and give you a first insight into the exciting world of Kalimbas.
