This is a great little kit for building your own cigar box kalimba (thumb piano)! The cigar box and all of the necessary hardware is included with this kit (see list below), and we also include a 10-page instruction booklet that walks you through every step of the process. This is a nice basic kit that only requires basic tools such as a hand drill and screwdriver. Our how-to guide even includes a how-to-tune section to help you get started.
This is a great kit to build with kids, and the result is a beautiful, great-sounding little instrument that is sure to impress your friends. All of the key parts are pre-drilled to keep the assembly process nice and basic.

Please note that cigar box styles will vary widely from that shown in the listing photos, but we guarantee that the box you receive will be a nice flat style great for use as a cigar box kalimba. Some additional smoothing of tine ends with fine-grit sandpaper may be needed. These are used cigar boxes that once held cigars, and they may have minor scratches, nicks and imperfections left over from their previous life.
