The craftsmanship is great and it sounds good. Just the vibrating on one metal thing sucks. Other than that I really like it. The cats pretty cool tooRead More
I have added this to my collection The only negative comment is that it is not tuned and no directions or recommendation for what notes might work best were enclosed For example what scale is good C G or D and what should the lowest note be on that particular scale.Read More
Interesting piece,but doesn't look or SOUND that good.Read More
Aren't you tired of plastic, production line products that are identical to the ones your friends and family have? The actual term "hand made" is about to become extinct due to the high costs of manual labor in "industrialized" countries. These Kalimba's are one of a kind, hand-made by craftstmen who are continuing a tradition that's hundreds of years old. It is a perfect addition to our Giraffe/Africa themed living room and is automatically picked up and played by every visitor we have stop by. My credit card is in serious danger of being taken to the max, simply because of the "Worldstock" section of Overstock.com, and my marriage may also be in jeopardy! At least the stuff I'm buying is totally loved by my wife. She hasn't even yelled at me --- yet! This Kalimba is wonderful.Read More
