The kalimba is an African musical instrument consisting of a wooden board (often hollowed for resonance) with attached staggered metal tines. The instrument is played by holding it in your hands and plucking the tines with your thumbs. It’s that simple. The kalimba is classified as a lamellophone, and an idiophone.

How to Tune Kalimba

Tuning the kalimba is actually just adjusting the exposed length of the tines until they reach the

correct pitch.

1: Tuner:
You can use a real tuner or download a tunning App.
Android system app: gStrings, Apple system app: Instuner.

2. Tune with harmmer:
Making tines longer (from the point where they are held down on the bridge) will lower their pitch, and making them shorter will make their pitch higher.
