Lovingly handmade in Germany from solid American black cherry wood. Polished with natural oils and waxes. Seventeen metal tines are precision tuned to the notes of the C Major scale (the white keys on a piano). D - B - G - E - C - A - F - D - C - E - G - B - D - F - A - C - E. This allows most of your favourite melodies to be played - a true musical instrument. The intuitive layout makes it easy to sound musical for beginners, but allows advanced players to milk the best out of this compact instrument.

Arrived attractively boxed.

What is a Kalimba?

A Kalimba is a modern version of a Mbira which is an African instrument, traditionally from Zimbabwe. The metal Tines are played with the thumbs and the sound resonates through the wood. It is also known as a "Thumb Piano".

Kalimbas benefit from using modern, western scales so are more accessible to our western ears than the traditional African versions. Many are tuned to simple scales, making them easy to get started with and to make beautiful, relaxing music straight away. They can be used for meditation, yoga and even performance.

The sound can be amplified by laying the Kalimba on a tabletop or the skin of a drum.

A small family business since 1985, Hokema produce beautiful little instruments from high quality materials. Hand made with passion in Germany.

What Our Customers Have to Say About Our Service...

"We ordered the Corinthian Chime Copper 29 inches after we had looked around for a while to get what we wanted. The chimes arrived in a couple of days in a neat presentation box, but I wanted to write to let you know how pleased we were with the chimes. They are really well made but I particularly like the sound from them - it really resonates and sounds just like they do on your website Thanks again"

John

"Just wanted to say a big thank you. The windchime I ordered as a gift on Bank Holiday Monday arrived today (Wednesday). Wind chime was extremely well wrapped in bubble wrap and in a box. The windchime looks even more prettier than the photo on your website. Excellent service, excellent prices. Will be using your services again!"
