Kalimbas are metal-tined instruments which originated in southern Africa and which can be found there in countless variations. Our Kalimba B17 is made of solid American black cherry wood and meticulously hand-crafted. The surfaces are treated and polished with natural oils and waxes. The 17 tines are precisely tuned to the scale of C-Major, so that a large number of well-known songs can be played. The Kalimba B17 is also ideal for improvisation and intuitive playing.
