Instrument Case details: Semi-hard like luggage. Stabilizing Insert is custom-fitted to the LingTing Chromatic Kalimba, to reduce movement and absorb impact effectively, prevents Kalimba from falling out accidentally. Smooth and durable zipper
Dust-Cover: It is recommended that your Kalimba is kept covered in the thin drawstring cloth bag whenever it is unused, to keep the Kalimba in optimal condition. It prevents the accumulation of dust and dirt while the Kalimba is resting. The instrument wipe-cloth can be used to clean any oils or perspiration from the instrument after practice.
Impact-Protection: Consider keeping your instrument in the instrument case whenever it is not in use, so that it is safe from accidents. Use the instrument case to protect your Kalimba during international travel. Pack the tuning accessories in the black fabric drawstring bag, and do not store it together with your Kalimba in the case as it may scratch your instrument.
Rust-Protection: You can use WD-40 to provide rust-protection for the metal components of your Kalimba. Spray any metal part, and wipe off the excess. WD-40 is not corrosive and will not harm the wood/ bamboo. We use WD-40 when assembling the instrument too.
Thumbnail-Protection: Your nails are now an essential part of your instrument, just like drum sticks for a drummer. Feel free to use the silicone thumb protectors.
Tuning: Your Kalimba was tuned before shipping, and usually arrives tuned. Here is what you can do if it loses its accuracy: Use a tuner (or a smartphone tuning app), tuning hammer, tuning pliers and refer to LingTing’stuning chart for each tine. For Both Layers, you can raise the pitch by using the tunning hammer to tap up. This helps to shorten the movable tine length and increases the pitch of the tine back to an accurate level. For the Upper Layer, you can lower the pitch by tapping down which lengthens the tines. For the Lower Layer, you can lower the pitch by gently pulling the tine down with pliers, taking care not to pull the lower tine out.
Everything in order was very good with fast shipping!!!
The sound of kalimba is beautiful, but the tuning system is very bad for my opinion! I found the way how to tune it, but this is still difficult...
The sound is a little less warm and a little more like a music box, which is ethereal. It came tuned well and with all the necessary accessories. It's heavier than a 17 key and feels amazing to hold. And it shipped very quickly! Thank you!
This Lingting kalimba sounds and looks very good, it is a pleasure to play. The additional tines in the 2nd row are long enough to tune the lowest ones down to F, G, A and B, if you prefer the standard layout. It is heavier than my chill angels kalimba, but not as loud. The sound of the tines moves after a short time to the overtone range, which makes them sound dry and ethereal at the same time.
My only grief is the tuning of this instrument. When I first saw its tuning mechanics, I thought it would be much easier to tune than other kalimbas. But the exact opposite is the case, tuning is an extreme challenge and takes a long time. I prefer a Renaissance mean tone tuning for my kalimbas, where you have to tune every tine very precisely in cents - this took me 2 days with the Lingting and gave me a headache. Now I hope that it really keeps the tuning and that I will never have to do this again. I also ruined the cheapo screw driver that comes with the kalimba.
Even more beautiful in person! Amazing quality from LingTing! Perfect sound and very easy to play!
