  • WOW! Something "made by hands" --- NOT a machine!
    Verified Purchase

    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.

  • fun but feels a bit flimsy
    Verified Purchase

    It has regular cheap screws in the top to hold the keys but the carving is nice and the sound is OK. I like supporting the local artisans in the poorer countries.

    This was given as a gift. But, I played it a little before giving it. I liked the sound if it although I'm a drummer and don't have skill in that area. I thought it was well-made and a very nice addition to my friend's musical instruments.

  • nice sound and carvings Cat handle is unusual
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    Verified Purchase

    Bought this because I thought it would be cute for my wife. It is impossible to tune because the screws that you use to tune it with are unable to tighten without them stripping out of the wood face. So you end up with a "nik-nak." I returned to Overstock and was pleased with the ease of returning and receiving a credit, hassle free. Don't bother to buy this item.
