Latin Percussion (LP) has added to its growing range of ethnic percussion instruments with Kalimbas in two sizes. LP already offers a range of African inspired percussion instruments such as Djembes, Bata, Shekere, and new Kalimbas extend the choice further.
The nine-key LP Kalimbas are available in Solid Natural Ash (LP0209) or Deep Cherry finished (LP0219DC) versions. Both have nine Chrome-plated metal tines laid out in a C pentatonic scale that produce clear and pure notes, which when blended together, create beautifully layered tones. The alternative Deep Cherry finished version features a chambered Siam Oak body for added resonance. The 17-Key Kalimba, finished in Deep Cherry (LP0217DC), features a chambered Siam Oak body that fits comfortably in the player’s hands and has a built-in vibrato side ports to add a sonic “wah” element to the sound.
