I pulled the tines off a vintage instrument, cleaned it up, burned on some designs (a la Tom Lanford) and reinstalled the tines. I tuned it pentatonic G, just like Maurice White of Earth Wind and Fire.
I'll likely try to flip it out on Ebay and try to get my money back. I really wanted a treble, with 17 tines.
Very nice Diane!!!
Nicely done, Diane.
Your kalimba looks great, Diane!
Will it expand your horizons to have two additional tines?
What is the measurement for the longest tine on this one?
I like your plant pattern!
I have since gotten a 17 tines and pulled off every other to make this:
Very nice and much more fun to play than the usual diatonic.
