    This rustic kalimba is made by artisans hailing from Kenya and features varying lengths of metal to create different tones. Sure to add vitality to any space, the simple design allows sonorous beauty to emanate from the distressed wooden body, complete with burned accents.

    • Perfect gift

      This was a perfect gift for my son. He produces music and is always looking for unusual/ different ways to make sounds. He uses it often. He said it is very nice.

    • for music, pay more

      Bought one of these for a friend's birthday, and one for myself. I imagined it a good meditation vehicle. Each arrived promptly at its correct destination, but I wished I had had time to receive mine before I sent it off as a gift--probably would have chosen something different. As ethnic art it is interesting, and most of the keys have some resonance at different pitches. It is attractive in a primitive way, but having heard a higher quality kalimba earlier this year, I was disappointed with its comparison. To enjoy this as an instrument rather than as an ethnic art piece it would need to have more resonance and clearer tone distinction. None of my disappointment is with Overstock or with the product--just with my over optimistic imagination.

    • Unique musical instrument

      I love this Kenyan Kalimba Thumb Piano. I bought it as a gift for my father, but I love it so much, I may keep it and get him another one. I am so impressed with the items I get on World Trade. The little piano sounds so pretty and is well made (because it is handmade). I enjoy going to World Trade for gifts because my friends are always so impressed and ask how and where I found it. This little piano is so cute and made so well. Thank You. Betty.

    • Kalimba

      I recently purchased two world instruments from Overstock. The product is as described. It has a lovely burned wood design and the tines are decorated with colorful pieces of metal. Although this is a functional instrument, I believe it to be one produced for souvenir purchase. Souvenir items are usually not tuned to the desired pitch and the quality of materials is less than those used by actual musicians. I use this instrument as a demonstration of world instruments with my general music students, so it will not be used on a continual basis. It serves the function for which I purchased it.

    • Cute Toy

      This is a cute piece for the coffee table... got positive attention at a party. It is not a true thumb piano (not pretty sounding) but is more of a toy. Excellent to bring to a drum circle at the beach since It is not fragile or expensive enough to worry about damage/loss
