This listing is for the purchase of ONE kalimba key. It is suggested that you purchase at least 6 keys to make a basic kalimba. Most people will be happiest if they order 8-16 keys. I make these kalimba keys from some of the same material that I use for my kalimbas sold here on Etsy and described on my blog. They are made from high quality blue-tempered spring steel. You will notice that I sell stiff and floppy key material. Neither is better than the other, it depends on the other details of your kalimba design. Message me about your project and I will gladly make a recommendation. These kalimba keys are cut to size and their ends are sanded and smoothed to remove dangerously sharp edges. Most people will want to spend some time to shape and smooth the keys a little more to improve... Less

We made this rich sounding yet mellow Alto toned Kalimba from a beautiful Jamaican Cigar box. With a Rich Brown colored finish, black painted Camacho label and a double f sound holes this is a uniquely beautiful instrument. The Kalimba is an African Thumb Piano, related to the mbira and sansa. We make ours with respect for both primitive and classical instrument makers and styles. We use luthier techniques to enhance the resonance of each box, then we tune each box according to it's individual resonance. In this case, 11 steel tines are tuned to a D minor blues scale which makes it easy for melodic improvisation. You will be surprised by the resonance and sound quality and relaxed by the meditative soothing mellow tones. You may even say goodbye to your therapist if you play it regularly... Less

Features: Groth Music is pleased to once again offer the Hugh Tracey line of Kalimbas, thanks to the efforts of kalimba master Mark Holdaway. The Hugh Tracey Kalimbas are the original kalimbas made by African Musical Instruments in Grahamstown, South Africa since 1965. Made from kiaat wood and high quality spring steel, these are real musical instruments and are easy to play, not just a pretty coffee table ornament. The karimba is similar to the mbira from Zimbabwe. It has 17 tines organized in two rows, but at first glance the organization isn't logical. However, as you begin to play, you find that the inherent logic of this instrument makes even the whitest folks sound like traditional African musicians! Traditionally used in ceremonies to speak with one's ancestors in Shona ceremonies,... Less

Hi, My name is Boyan, I live and craft in Spain. The kalimba i make i call the Acoustic Kalimba. Its round, very light and acoustically engineered for big harmonic sound. It has the acoustics of a carefully constructed guitar. That is the main difference from other kalimbas on the market, including the Hugh Tracey Alto. And by that i mean that it has clear, string/piano/bell like sound with good harmonic sustain. And surprising volume and resonance for its size, due to the truly resonant carefully calculated and constructed body and tines. The first thing people say when the struck the tines is: Wow, its alive The physical dimensions are OD ~ 20cm , Height ~ 40mm, weight ~ 280g . That means it would be comfortable to hold for everybody, children or adults. And easy to play for long... Less

This is a large, rather heavy-bodied, handmade, hickory kalimba, with a cute Grape Frostie buzzer. It has a great sound and the scale is G minor minus the second degree A. This kalimba is an excellent choice for the person who wants to crank out some cool, mellow, bluesy rhythms. Most kalimbas don't have buzzers, but, again, I think the buzzer adds an element of interest and complexity to the music, so I like to put them on my kalimbas when it feels right to do so. And it did. If you're someone with good dexterity, you can even occasionally tap the buzzer with your thumb, which is cool way to add in a little extra beat here and there. If you have any questions or you would like to hear this kalimba, convo me and I'll be glad to send you a sound file. I make every attempt to make sure that... Less

( In stock )
The mbira nyKalimba offers players some of the best features of modern kalimbas and traditional mbiras all in one instrument. With typical kalimbas you must alternate between left and right thumbs to play a scale. This system is great for its own reasons, one of them being that it is simple to play harmonies because all the notes in a chord are already next to each other. With the mbira nyKalimba, you can still play harmonies very easily, yet the notes are arranged in scale order (see picture #4), which makes it delightfully intuitive to play. Many people are able to relate more with the mbira nyKalimba than they can with other kinds of kalimbas.

Tiplop Thumb Piano--- 17 Notes Beautiful Wooden African Thumb Piano Each note of a kalimba, mbira, etc. is a separate idiophone, and in orchestral terms, the instrument as a whole belongs in the bar percussion family (specifically: lamellophones). Furthermore, the thumbs are not exclusively used, as some instruments are played with the thumbs and other fingers also. Thumb pianos traditionally consist of a wooden board to which metal tines of varying lengths are affixed. Some have mechanisms for readily tuning the tines to different scales. The longest tines are typically in the center, with shorter (and thus higher-pitched) tines arranged alternately in ascending order towards both sides of the instrument.
