Prototypes for the Chromatic Kalimba

I have been working this summer on the Chromatic Kalimba; here some prototypes. Decided on using brass for the brackets and bridges, and using three compartments in the sound box. Range will be 3 octaves G2-G5.

6-Tone Wood Tongue Drum in a different tuning

Made this one for a musician in Belgium who requested this particular tuning: A – C – E – G – B – D. With the open thirds there is less of a tonal center. I had only a few days to play on it, but I found this simple but fun rhythm on it.

workshop in the old garage

We have to change address, and of course my workshop has to come along. Luckily the new place has enough room for my tools and materials, and there I will continue with the kalimbas and mouth harps.

Going live with my wordpress site. If you see any glaring omissions, or have anything else to say, feel free to leave me a comment. Looks are similar to the old static site but now I can easily add blog posts and have comments.
