The Sonodrum Kalimba is handmade from high-quality rosewood, which is characterized by an accurate, clear sound and a good response echo. The increased density of the rosewood gives our kalimba a slightly deeper sound.

Because of its soothing melody, the kalimba is considered a wonderful instrument for relaxation, meditation and yoga. Also together with a large reed drum or hang drum, the kalimba sounds just perfect.

What is a Kalimba?

The kalimba is a handy, natural wooden block on which the individual sounding bodies made of ore metal have been integrated as a piano by the finest handwork. The arrangement of the individual sound bars produces a beautiful melody when played.

How does the Kalimba produce its sound?

The sound vibration is intercepted by the real wood block and deep acoustics are created by the opening on the back, which make up the entire sound. The flat surface on the top makes the middle and high frequencies sound clearer and purer.

"With the kalimba, you don't necessarily play by notes, but you let the melody of the instrument guide you."

Easy to play

Because of the soft, warm sound of the kalimba, you will fall in love with its timbre right away. The kalimba is played all over the world because it is easy to learn. To be able to play the kalimba, you don't need any previous knowledge or musical training. Therefore, it is easy to play even for absolute beginners.

Two variations

Our kalimba is available in 2 different versions, one with 17 and one with 21 keys. The keys are rounded and made of ore steel, for a pleasant feel. The rounded edges in the wood make it easy to hold the kalimba in your hands.

Easy to tune

The tones of the kalimba can be tuned by sliding the slats back and forth. In principle, this allows tuning to any tonal system. However, tunings are done in terms of intervals rather than steps of a scale. In the case of a diatonic scale, for example, the notes are arranged alternately to the right and left of the long center lamella. If you pluck two adjacent slats, you will hear a consonant third, if you pluck three, you will hear a triad, and so on. In free playing, therefore, secondary dissonances can only be produced by plucking a left and a right lamella, which is why it usually sounds consonant.
