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 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.
