I'm totally in love with my Kalimba! I'm enjoying learning the songs in the booklet, and looking up other songs and trying to learn them. One thing I would change would be to etch the numbers lower down on the tines, and add the corresponding notes C, E, G, etc , so they are easier to see as you pluck away.
great fun, sounds great

I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my musician grandson. The smile on his face said it all. Within minutes, he was plinking along with a rendition of a Christmas carol. He said it was the best gift ever!

Cedar Board Kalimba

The Mountain Melodies thumb-harp is elegantly designed and crafted in the United States from polished cedar. With the included songbook and its intuitive design, you will be playing and experimenting with your own music in no time.

Mountain Melodies

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.
