What is a kalimba and what is a kalimba-making kit?

A kalimba is a melodic African wind instrument typically built from wood and featuring a keyboard in the form of vibrating metal tines. Kalimba kits enable you to make your own kalimba from a set of parts (wood, tines, keyboard, etc.).

The advantages of making your own kalimba

There are many advantages to making your own kalimba rather than buying it ready-made. Firstly, the manufacturing process will allow you to set up the instrument perfectly to your size and preference. You'll be free to choose the style, size and configuration, which means your kalimba will be a unique, personalized instrument.

Secondly, the building process can be very intuitive and fun. You'll get to know your instrument throughout the process, and feel proud when you're finished. The kits are designed for easy assembly, and the result will be as satisfying as a ready-to-use instrument.

Finally, making your own kalimba can be an excellent family activity. The kits are designed to be simple and user-friendly. You can learn how to adapt and paint the parts, and choose personalized designs. Young and old alike will love creating their kalimba and spending time with your loved ones working on a joint project. 🤩
