Mini Electric Kalimba / Pocket Thumb Piano Handheld Instrument
The Mini Electric Kalimba is a pocket-sized electric acoustic instrument featuring an 8 note scale that can be tuned via moving the metal tines back or forward.
Pairing this device with reverb provides Mbira style world sounds and sweet bell-like Kalimba tones as found on countless studio recordings. With distortion the Metta Kalimba turns into a melodic harsh noise machine.
Wired by hand, the Metta Kalimba features a piezoelectric pickup system wired to a 1/4” jack that allows the user to play through amplifiers, effects and more making it ideal for recording or loud live music environments.
This is a passive device that requires no batteries or electricity to work.
Rugged powder coated aluminium enclosure with hand in laid graphic.
Enclosure dimensions: 50 mm x 50 mm x 27 mm
Designed and built by hand in Brisbane, Australia.
