This has been a hit since it arrived in our home. My 21 month on grandson sat and plinked on it for the longest time and I was playing songs within minutes of holding it. The quality is remarkable and it's so nice to know I've purchased a product made right here in the USA. We should have this for years and years to come. Thanks Grommet for the fun, quality products!More > < Less

My 9 year old grandson loved this instrument. He was plunking tunes in no time. I think I need to give a few more of my grandkids one of these. It's an unusual instrument made to be a quality product. Love these!More > < Less

About Mountain Melodies

Handcrafted Music

Mountain Melodies gives the gift of music to everyone—without the need to read notes. Crafted by husband and wife team Paul and Sue Bergstrom, each Mountain Melodies thumb harp is handmade in North Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains out of beautifully polished cedar. Paul and Sue have a vision to provide "music made simple for all ages," and the thumb harp does just that.

The thumb harp, or "kalimba," originated in Africa, but its unique sound and easy-to-play design have made it loved worldwide. Eight numbered keys let you play the entire C scale simply by alternating your thumbs. The sound is reminiscent of an understated xylophone, giving off a clear, sweet chime that is pleasantly soft.

An included songbook guides you to playing traditional melodies by the numbers found on the kalimba. It’s simple and fun, allowing anyone to pick up this elegantly designed instrument and make music.
