Hokema B9 Kalimba Aria

I was pleased with customer service & by the work ethic that this company has. This is my first kalimba that I have ever owned. It is easy to make pretty little melodies & pairs well with the chime of the same key, but admittedly the kalimba sounds louder & sweeter when held & played so it works better when these instruments are played by 2 people. Overall I was pleased with my purchase.

Fun and super easy to play

I love how easy it is to just pick up and play. My anxiety lessened until I found myself in a meditative space. It happens every time I pick it up. Ended up purchasing a few more for friends. We play together and none of us has had lessons!
