The new Chromatic Kalimba – a piano kalimba
I have been receiving regular requests for the chromatic kalimba over the years. Now, with the lasercutting technology I used for the Linear Kalimba, I have designed a chromatic kalimba that I can offer for a reasonable price.
- 37 tones
- 3 octaves chromatically, from G2 to G5
- Notes are layed out like a piano keyboard and can be played with the fingers or thumbs
- Size: 56 cm x 39 cm x 15 cm; weight is about 9.5 kg
- Multiple resonance chambers
- Floating soundboard for a decent volume and bass response
- built-in pickups for amplification
The first batch of 3 instruments is sold now. I am working on the next set of 4 instruments; expected to be finished by July.
The price of the linear kalimba is 877 Euro for customers in the EU (this includes 21% sales tax). Shipping in the EU costs around 25 Euro. The price for customers outside of the European Union is 798 USD plus about 64 USD shipping.
Please send me a message if you are interested in this instrument.
