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 and are made of great different woods.
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.
Wah-wah Kalimbas have a body-oriented soundhole to create a great wah-wah effect. Simply bounce the Kalimba body on and off your belly and let the sound move creatively.
These miniature-sized instruments are excellent gift ideas for musicians and give you a first insight into the exciting world of kalimbas.
