Love the wonderful tones.
This was my first instrument buying and playing. I’m very grateful that I got this. When I received it, it was packaged correctly. The instrument is very fun to use and easy to learn!
This is a very beautiful kalimba! I noticed Gecko now puts a nice reddish stain or varnish on the wood to give it nice gloss and color to it! I haven’t ever seen this in any YT videos that reviews this specific kalimba nor in any photos of it, so this is a wonderful surprise! I own 3 different Kalimba brands and I had to try out the tines of the Gecko! It’s wider than most kalimba tines, so this is PERFECT for an absolute beginner, people with larger fingers to prevent accidental plucking of tines around it, or even elderly since the key letters are larger! The tines really sound beautiful (as I expected) all the way up to it’s highest note. Doesn’t quite resonate as long as LingTing but it does resonate reasonably well for a flatboard! The tines are NOT engraved, but I see the key letters/numbers are PRINTED directly on the them. I’m not sure if that’s called “embossing” but you can feel the key letters if you rub your finger over them. The smell of the would is really nice ... I use camphor medicine for headaches (LOL) so it’s cool to know that they make things out of it’s wood and that the smell remains in the wood itself! I really LOVE this kalimba! I highly recommend it!!!
When I opened the package, I was hit with the Camphor fragrance and I actually love it! I also love the sound of the B major! It’s beautiful!
Perfect order ! : )
Nice communication with the seller.
The product is so pretty and the sound is amazing !
Very satisfied of the product!
All good. Exactly what I expected.
Kalimba arrived very quickly in France, in an intact and complete packaging. The intoxicating smell of camphor is very appreciable, a bonus for its high vibrations!
The smell has arrived in less time than I expected fabulous thank you
Intense aroma camphor :) Very cool sound. Shipment rejestrowana. Recommend.
Very nice with good wood scent. Sounds great.
Kalimba is great! All that is stated came in the kit, packed well. The seller is responsive, responds quickly, advises.
I want to compare it with the tool from April Yang from Beech, I chose for a long time and eventually bought both. The sound of gecko is deeper, more uniform volume and the duration of the sound of high and low notes. Kalimba April is more sonorous, the sound is juicy. The sound is both good in its own way. The gecko keys are wider and spaced with a large gap. And the tool itself is wider. In my opinion this is more convenient, it is easier to get into the desired key of the beginner. The angle of placement of the keys in relation to the body of gecko is less, in April they are overstretched at the top. And the keys themselves in gecko are even, and in April rounded, slide the nail on the keys is easier on gecko. Of the minuses: This gecko is from camphor and smells very strong, the smell is pleasant, but very strong, the head hurts from it, it is poorly weathered, but this is my stupid increased sensitivity to odors. As a result, both kalimba are very good, but this is still a little better
The kalimba is very beautiful and of good quality. The softness and scent of wood are incredible, and the impeccable finishes. The sound is soft and you can play it in an apartment without bothering the neighbors.
I received it in advance, and had no trouble following the package. The kalimba was carefully packed, arrived well tuned, and with all the small tools mentioned in the description.
I am very satisfied with this instrument and the shop. Thank you very much!
