I wish the instrument had the hole on the face of the playing side….I think you can do more things with that hole and the sound reverberations etc. with the hole there as I have seen in so many pictures. I never thought about the instrument I ordered not having the hole there.
Sorry, it’s a nice instrument, but seems less charismatic and more ‘closed” without the hole.
The shipping was fast and it has a great sound!
I bought this fir my daughter, who used to be skilled clarinet player. She has since become disabled and that has been difficult for her and for us to watch. This Kalimba is so beautiful and music it creates very calming. She opened it today and is still playing it because she loves it so much! Thank you!! Many blessings to you all!
This instrument is awesome, and look great well worth the wait!
Feels and plays well!
It looks as beautiful as it sounds thank you!
It is so cute! it came in great condition as well as fast. the sound is beautiful as well
This kalimba is so wonderful! Very well made. The wood is darker than I expected, but still very beuatiful. It sounds very nice and playing it is a pleasure: the tines are rounded and perfectly smooth. I love it.
Very fast delivery to Germany without any problem!
Very beautiful instrument, works well. My only issue is the satchel it comes with clings to the instrument and can get caught between keys, so maybe they should include a box case with an indentation for the instrument instead.
Sounds really nice and make quality is fantastic. The included manual and items is great!
My daughter truly loves her new Kalimba and has learned how to play 2 songs since her birthday a week ago! I love enjoying her play!! She has wanted this since Christmas and I’m so thankful to be able to get it for her for her 12th birthday!!!
Wow! Go Kalimba website is legit! And the delivery is so fast. They said it is 10-14 days but I have received it after 5 days (including Sat and Sun). The quality of the Kalimba is good.
The music was so soothing and easy to play, was very comfortable to hold! The rosewood is absolutely beautiful and I appreciate the storage bag and tuner! Nice surprise!
I really like this Kalimba! It has a beautiful, tropical, even tone, and came correctly tuned. It naturally creates a warm atmosphere and I look forward to playing it more. The shipping was also excellent. It arrived in just a couple days/ I saw was shipped the same day I ordered. I really appreciate that. Thank you!
Got for my granddaughters. They love it
Super fast shipping and beautiful kalimba, Love it.
I think I bought one (21 key) which is for someone more advanced.....but none the less will look forward to teaching myself the beauty of it's magical tones.
Instrument is beautiful- well made and more than we expected
Beautifully crafted. It arrived carefully wrapped and was prettier than I expected. Can't wait to give it to my son for Christmas
Absolutely beautiful. Sounds as good as it looks!
Absolutely beautiful sounding and the rosewood is stunning!!! Sound is clear and shipping was super fast. May from customer support was beyond helpful in my quest for a new kalimba. I HIGHLY recommend them! Thank you Shakala! - Forever a loyal customer
This is a beautiful instrument! Looks and sounds exactly as advertised. It sounds bright and clear and is very easy to learn to play. It is much more portable than my acoustic guitar and can be played at nearly the same volume. I'm looking forward to playing it around the camp fire.
I absolutely loved it. It plays beautifully and it got here super quick!
Christmas gift but looks great
WORTH EVERY PENNY!! Just bought one of these for my 11 year old son. He was looking for something simple to fiddle around with. He absolutely loves it. It sounds perfect and is beautiful! A solid and well made instrument.
The Kalimba is absolutely beautiful in both appearance and sound quality. I’m very impressed with the craftsmanship.
The booklet that came with the Kalimba was for the 10, 15, & 17 key kalimba. I have a 21 key .
Is there a 21 key booklet & music?
Thank you for your time.
This was for my son. It arrived on time and packaged very nicely. The kalimba is very nice and the stand is also cool. I like that the stand is made of wood also and easy to put together (two interlocking pieces) . I love the sound and my son really enjoys playing it, you don't need to be an expert for it to sound pretty!!
My daughter is very happy and love it...Very beautiful and the quality is the best....
My kalimba got here in good time
It sounds great
I love both of them ! Please watch my video about these 2 Kalimbas
Sounds beautiful!! Keys feel nice and do not need much force to play. The box feels a little light, and I worry a little bit about the sturdiness, but it resonates so nicely!
