If you are looking for an easy-to-play, harmonious-sounding and convenient instrument? Then the 7-tone Kalimba in D minor is the ideal choice for you.
The curvaceous body fibs wonderfully in the hands and feels almost soft, so carefully has the surface of the cherry wood block been worked. Seven tines are screwed onto the grained soft wood, strictly tuned to D major pentatonic. And although the kalimba is quite small with its 13 cm length, it can be played completely well by both small and large hands. The seven tines are comfortable spaced.
If you pluck the reeds with your thumbs, delicate, soothing sounds unfold that rarely sound "off-key". And all this without any preparation! Even troubled parents benefit from this, because even when plucked wildly, the kalimba sounds melodic. The ideal instrument for children! It is easy to play, sounds soft and pleasant and is a seductive adventure for young and old. Because you can not only hear this kalimba, but also feel it. When you let the notes vibrate, the gentle vibrations are transferred to your hands, which feels very pleasant. Even babies like this. They experience the soft vibrations particularly intensively when a kalimba is placed on their belly and the notes are struck softly with the fingers. The delicate melodies are visibly enjoyed and have a calming effect. Toddlers like to experiment with the whole instrument. It pays off that the kalimba is sturdily made of solid cherry wood.
The floating sound can be amplified by pressing the kalimba onto a large resonating body. Tables, cupboards, chairs or a Cajon can be used for this.
From first musical experiments and simple songs to meditative and fast-paced sound experiences, the enchanting kalimba is a reliable and long-lasting companion.
