Bolf 9-Note Student Karimba
A solid kalimba that fits great in your small hands, for African music.
These sweet instruments with their soft-ish tines are perfect instruments for young children who want to learn some African oriented music. (I also love mine, and often play it to unwind.) The instrument size is great for kids, and the body shape is also smoothed nicely. Wonderful to hold and play.
It is thought that the notes of the Student Karimba represent the original mbira from Africa over 1000 years ago, and there is ample instructional material. This instrument ships with the "Student Karimba for Kids" booklet.
