    The kalimba, or thumb piano, is one of those instruments you just canít wait to get your hands on. Beginners and seasoned musicians alike appreciate its unique and authentic old world look and beautiful sound range.

    Born of African musical descent, the kalimba thumb piano has been around for thousands of years and is now beginning to make its mark on modern music. Inspired by the look and sound of the handmade kalimbas of old, ours features a natural coconut shell with a wooden faceplate and whimsical, hand-carved gecko art that pays homage to the kalimbaís tribal heritage. To get the sound just right, you can easily fine tune the pitch and tone of the seven individual keys simply by turning the two screws on top of the instrument. Longer keys have a lower pitch, while shorter keys have a higher pitch.

    Playing the kalimba is easy and fun for all ages and skill levels, and it makes a great addition to your instrument collection. Just hold the kalimba in your hands, playing the keys with both thumbs at once or just the one thumb to create soothing, enchanting melodies. You can also experiment with more complex arrangements and see where that takes you musically.

    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Potomac, MD United States  
    My son wanted an unusual instrument and this Kalimba satisfied his need. Inexpensive and nice sound delivered promptly. A bit difficult to tune well. Thanks very much.

    Coconut sheel Kalimba September 17, 2013
    Reviewer: Shannon McDonald from Stanfield, OR United States  
    I have always liked music from other countries-the variety of sounds. I was looking on when I was taken to this site. It arrived very quickly, much to my surprise. NOW, I just have to see if there is some sort of instruction book or music book so I can do more than make a joyful noise...

    Fun instrument, great service. August 4, 2012
    Reviewer: Jeff K. from Los Alamitos, CA United States  
    The Kalimba looked pretty neat and I thought it would be fun to play around with.  It is, and I am really enjoying it.  I had seen an earlier review on the site that mentioned that X8 Drums had contacted them to verify the order because the billing and shipping addresses differed and this could indicate fraud.  I had the same issue and Matt called me up to check that I had placed the order and told me that use of different addresses is common with hijacked accounts and stolen cards.  It made me feel good to know that X8 cared to make sure the order was legitimate and would contact me personally to make sure I was the purchaser and not being stolen from.  A lot of businesses would have just taken the money even if they had suspicions.  Again, I had high expectations of the Kalimba, and they were exceeded.  It is fun and a nice little instrument at a good price.  I may get one for my nephew's birthday in a few months.  X8 did a good job and I look forward to dealing with them again.

    Impressive June 13, 2012
    Reviewer: Raymond D from Stillwater, MN United States  
    I was surprised, and impressed, when prior to shipping I received a call to verify the shipping address. It was a gift going to my grandson at a location other then our billing address and they wanted to make certain we had not been hacked. The gift arrived timely and should add a nice touch to his birthday.
