Kalimba B5 The Kalimba B5 is ideal for those who do not want to be without an instrument wherever they may be. This is our smallest model and is fitted with five tines mounted on a solid mahogany block. The sound of t he instrument can be amplified by laying it on or sticking it onto a tabletop or the skin of a drum. A bright and clear f-minor triad is produced by plucking the tines with the thumbs. As all the notes harmonise with each other, beginners also enjoy immediate success with their instrument.
