    Default Hugh Tracey Kalimba ! Any Kalimba, karimba, Mbira, sansula, etc. lovers around?

    My instrument of choice is actually the Hugh Tracey Alto Kalimba (With a pick-up) I first saw a tourist gourd kalimba in a Eugene, OR music shop as a child and was instantly captivated . I found out that they were made as professional quality instruments and the rest is history!

    Anyone else like this family of instruments? (lamellephone)
    I noticed that I have a preoccupation with more portable instruments that I can walk around while playing. Or fit in a backpack.

    check out Colorado Soundscapes. They make a Kalimba that must be the cream of the crop--at least that's what I think of mine!!!!
    . . . and justice for all.

    Have a few Kalimbas I want to build on my "to do" list.........it's a very long one. One on a cigar box, the other on a soprano uke body using a C.B. Gitty hardware kit. I also want to put a piezo pickup in them.

    in the models of kalimba, I like the hokema. They have a good sound, and a good touch. They made in Germany by mister Hokema.
    The Hugh Tracey Kalimba are good too.
