This instrument is a nice addition to my other pieces. The color is gorgeous and the sound is crisp and clear.
It was a gift and the little girl who got it loves it.
Love this instrument. Soulful sound
Very pretty. Got the blue. Sturdy. For a Christmas present.
I absolutely love my kalimba! I got it for myself as a graduation present and I've played it almost every night since I got it. Highly recommend.
Came beautifully unscathed and intact! Sounds beautiful and is perfect to hold comfortably in my small hands. The cloth is very nice for cleaning and the stickers stay on tightly but you can still remove them if you want to in the future. I was worried the bag was going to feel cheap but it isn't! The hammer is sturdy and the booklet to get started is great for beginners.
