Kalimba/Thumb Piano Hardware Parts Kit

C. B. Gitty $26.99

This is a hardware pack of all of the pieces you need to construct a kalimba/thumb piano out of a cigar box, board, gourd or other suitable implement.  All of the necessary hardware is included with this kit (see list below), and we also include an instruction booklet that walks you through every step of the process (with a focus on making a kalimba from a cigar box). This kit 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 your kalimba tuned up.

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.
