It is consist of a wooden board (often fitted with a resonator) with attached staggered metal tines, played by holding the instrument in the hands and plucking the tines with the thumbs. Very suitable for travel entertainment, religious ceremonies, weddings and other social gatherings.

The hollow lingting in A has a beautiful wood pattern and is the best hollow kalimba I have ever played! The tines sound beautiful and all resonate clearly. So glad Gokalimba has these available. And May was so very helpful in showing me the tone of this kalimba! I love this lingting. It is the very best!
The LingTing in "A" major is my third kalimba purchase....others in "C" and "B". Shakala is a good company, easy to communicate with for questions or orders, and I recommend them
