Justin wrote in to tell me about how he fixes buzzes on his kalimba:
I wanted to write you to tell you about a trick I've been using to fix buzzes - which, in my opinion, works ever so slightly more effectively than regular paper. I picked up a pack of extra-thin tobacco rolling paper at my local convenience store and have been using thin strips of this paper to slide underneath the tines, instead of regular paper. Cigarette papers seem to deaden the notes much less once they're in place, especially on the Treble kalimba. I thought this might be something you would want to pass along or give a try yourself.
Thank you, Justin!
