The Hugh Tracey Treble Kalimba with 17 tines attached to a sound box corpus was the first model which Hugh Tracey mass-produced and sold in the 1950ies after a long time of research and testing. It has a sound hole on the front side and two modulation holes on the back which can be covered by the fingers to gain various effects. The Treble kalimba is also tuned diatonically in the key of G, but its keys reach a bit higher than the Alto – from B3 (B below middle C) to D6. The tines of the Treble are narrower than the ones of the Alto and have two more keys, but it is still very easy to play.
This Kalimba is available with pick-up (1/4" phone plug), too.
Kalimba Tuning - Simple and Efficient!
Anyone who plays a Kalimba regularly will certainly have noticed that the instrument begins to sound "inharmonic" or "weird" over time. Then the moment has come when you ask yourself, "What's going on here and how can I bring it back to its original condition?"
From the toy section to the stage: How the Kalimba became famous in the US and Europe
Looking at the European museum catalogue for musical instruments MIMO (Musical Instrument Museums Online), one can find almost 170 musical instruments under the keyword “lamellaphones in Africa”. Thereby one is often very different from another one.
