Kalimbas are metal-tined instruments which originated in southern Africa and which can be found there in countless variations.

Our Kalimba B11 Melody is meticulously hand-crafted out of solid American black cherry wood. The surfaces is treated and polished with natural oils and waxes. The 11 tines are precisely tuned to the scale of G Major, suitable for playing countless popular tunes. The Melody is ideal for improvisation and intuitive playing.

Tablature

We positioned the long and short tines alternately to ensure ease of playing in accordance with acoustic criteria. The six shorter tines are bent -  with the ends raised above the longer tines - enabling easy reach by the thumbs.

The eleven tines are numbered from left to right. The even numbers 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 represent the longer tines and the odd numbers represent the shorter. Generally ‚Äď for single-voice melodies ‚Äď the left thumb (L) plays tines 1-6 and the right thumb (R) plays 6-11.

  • Bag reinforced with fiberglass
  • Fully padded on the inside
  • Adjustable shoulder-strap
  • Protect your sensual perfectly
  • Lightweight and durable

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!
