Collection: Kalimba

Small african originated instrument, Kalimba , also called "piano à pouces", is composed of a base on which are fixed steel keys  must be touched wuth thumbs in order to produce sounds.

Kalimba's sound is relatively close to that of a music box, more velvety, deeper.
 Played softly it can also sometimes remind the sound of a harp or even that of a bell depending on the model.
His learning is quick and easy, and requires no knowledge of music. A bit of practice, and the trick is done:)

All instruments have been selected for their manufacturing quality and sound quality, so you will not be disappointed.

WHICH KALIMBA TO CHOOSE?
Let’s start with the types of kalimba.
type FLAT: FLAT are thin and made of a single piece of wood. They are solid, with (generally) a low to medium sound volume, suitable for smaller hands and beginners. Can be used from 2 years for 8-key models,10 years for 17-key models.

Type HOLLOW BOX: The box works as a resonator, like guitars. The notes sometimes last less than on FLAT, but their sound volume is much higher, which makes it possible to be heard better in a noisy environment. The holes allow playing using a "wah wah" effect. Thicker than flat, they are more suitable for adults.

Among these 2 types there are two kinds of kalimba:
Diatonic kalimba, provided with a single row of keys (except for kalimba 20 seed keys that are provided with two rows) usually representing the white notes of a piano keyboard.

The chromatic kalimba, which are provided with two rows of keys, 1 row equivalent to the white notes of a pianio keyboard, the other row equivalent to the black notes of the piano. So you have complete ranges, and the possibility to play larger varieties of music.
