TUNING YOUR KALIMBA

Step 1: Use a tuner

Columbus(24 key) and Pisces(34 key) comes pre-tuned. However ,after some times playing, movements in the tines reduces the precision of each key. To know whether each key is in tune, you will need a tuner (buy from here). This can be a physical tuning device, or a free smartphone tuning app. We recommend Da Tuner for android or Ins Tuner for ios smartphones. How to use a tuner varies greatly. Please read the instructions meant for your chosen device or app.

Step 2: Refer to the Correct Tuning Chart

Pisces' C Tone tuning chart is on page B1 of your booklet.

There is no physical copy of the tuning chart for customers who bought the seeds Pisces B Tone Kalimba. Save a copy or print the B Tone Tuning Chart PDF.

For 24 key Columbus, you can refer to this Columbus Tuning Chart.


Step 3: Use Tuning Hammer

With reference to the tuning chart which shows you the musical alphabet for each key, strike each tine to see if it is in the correct tune with the aid of your tuner.

If the tuner shows that the tine sounds lower than it should, use the tuning hammer to TAP UP.

If the tuner shows that the tine sounds higher than it should, use the tuning hammer to TAP DOWN.

FAQ:

1 (do )can be = any musical alphabet.

For C Tone Pisces 12345 means CDEFG

What are the benefits of C Tone or B Tone Kalimba?

The C tone Kalimba has no accidentals on the lower layer, like a piano keyboard, So C Tone may be easier to find the right notes, like a piano, when collaborating with other musicians.

B tone as a lower pitch and you play it the same way. If you plan to play individually only, a lower B tone feels more soothing. 

Can I re-tune C Tone to C? Or C Tone to B?

For C Tone Pisces, Yes. You can tune C down to B scale or Bb scale with no sound issues.

For B Tone Pisces, B Tone Kalimba has better sound quality in C tuning or Bb tuning. We do not recommend tuning up to C Scale. Purchase C Tone Pisces instead for quality assurance to tune it to any tone.
