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.
Made of high-quality solid African phoenix with 17keys adjustable carbon steel tines, providing more bright and clear timbre, longer sustain and comfortable touch feeling. This kalimba is a real musical instrument that will amaze you!
Easy play and quick learning, just holding it in the hands and plucking the tines with your thumbs to create clear and melodious sounds; it can also create special tremolo with the accompaniment chain.

This is the quality and sound I would respect from LingTing. I had recently purchased a different LingTing product from Amazon and the sound was horrible. So I payed more through Shakala but I think it was worth it.
