Also known as a thumb piano, the kalimba is an instrument many people haven't had the pleasure of experiencing yet. Regardless if you're the first of your friends to own one or you're looking to join a group of experienced players, this is an instrument you should consider adding to your repertoire. By using your thumbs to pluck out a tune on the tines you'll create a clear, percussive, and even chimelike sound that you're sure to love right from the first note. With full kits that include everything from a hard case to finger protectors and with the option of curved hand rests or a solid body - you're sure to find a kalimba that's just right for you. Whether you're an avid music collector or just want to try something new, a beautiful kalimba from Ashthorpe is definitely worth checking out.
