Wonderful sound By:
I'd never heard a kalimba until seeing it on Facebook and had to buy one. This purchase has peaked my interest even more. A beautiful sound comes from the item. If I had a complaint it would be that there are not enough "songbooks" to accompany it and there wasn't anything I could find on how to tune it, even though there was a hammer that came with it. It is NOT our of tune, but I can see where it may need an occasional tweak. It's very melodic and gives a very pleasant sound and feeling of accomplishment when played.
Great buy By:
Love this instrument. Bought it for myself. My teen keeps taking it to play. The notes on the instrument help with learning how to play
Very nice quality By:
This was a hit with my music loving kiddo! Very nice wood finish and the sound quality is great too
Was a Hit at Christmas By:
This was purchased as a gift for our 11 year old Granddaughter. She was able to play it easily and was picking out tunes. Our 16 year old Grandson could hardly wait to get his hands on it. He plays trumpet so he first tuned it and then started playing songs. It seems well made and was a fun addition to our Christmas.
It's niiiiice By:
Really great for beginners. The booklet is nice and offers a song to learn. Only one of my keys came buzzy, but the booklet can help with that. Ive had mine for a few weeks and it still plays great!
fun and unique By:
My brother owns a music studio and also teaches music. I thought I would give him this as something different to learn. IT took about a week, but he can make it sing. Great gift for the musician
Great Gift idea! By:
This is a great gift! It sounds amazing! I would get this for anyone on my list! It was also delivered when when scheduled!
Crazy for Kalimba! By:
I bought this as a gift and loved it so much that I kept it and ordered another one!
Fun and interesting for me and my 8yo By:
Love this little instrument. It's easy to use once I learned where are the notes. Just need to find a music book exclusively for this. Both my 8yo and I love tapping it. I learned to practice Jingle Bells to play for family. Love it.
Beautiful and easy to handle. By:
The quality of this instrument is more than I expected. The instrument itself is beautiful. And the tone is right on. Taking me a while to read music from bottom to top instead of left to right. But I am up for the challenge.

Great purchase! By:
Loved it the minute I took it out of the box. I was concerned because there was a few bad reviews on this product but mine came in perfectly! Came with a mallet, black bag and some stickers. I haven’t double checked the tuning yet, but I’ve already used it to learn one song and it sounds perfect to me! It has a really nice, clear sound. So glad I bought this!
Great purchase By:
Strong sound
Love it. By:
I like it so much. Good item for playing. The sound is so clear. Easy to learn.
Really nice little instrument! By:
This came with all the parts stated and all in excellent condition. Tines are tuned. The sounds have a little bit of a bell-like voice in my opinion. It actually sounds better than the videos I watched. The Kalimba is solid and sturdy. I know how to read notes on piano sheet music and quickly played two songs. The only not-so-good thing is that the "user manual" is a total joke. The front cover has a picture of the Kalimba and the words "Kalimba User Manual" while the back cover identifies the tines, the tuning tool and products bag and a picture of two hands holding the Kalimba in a "playing" position with the following complete set of instructions: "Hold the kalimba by hands,play the keys back and forth by thumbs" [There are no typos by me. That is exactly what it says.] When you unfold the "manual" the inside two facing pages are completely blank. (I still give it five stars because the instrument and accessories are really good!) I bought the one with the hard case and the case itself is really good.
peacful By:
this kalimba was the perfect birthday present for my music crazy daughter!!! She loves it and I think the sound is so crisp and happy! So relaxing I'm in love!
Prettier in person By:
Got this for my teen and she loves it. Beautifully made and sounds great.
I’m a cat By:
Meow
I used it also. By:
Fun for both younger and older grandchildren
Lovely By:
A beautiful sound. Comes with everything you need. The design is pretty as well. Love it!Nice to just have sitting on a coffee table. People love to play with it.
Looks and sounds great By:
Perfect for the price. No flaws, came already in tune and sounds great. PROTIP for anyone ordering - keep the foam insert packaging it comes in. It is roughly 9"x7"x2.5" - and Hobby Lobby sells a wooden box almost to those exact dimensions. Trim just a hair of the foam off the sides, pop the whole thing into the box and you got a fancy wooden case to go with it
