The Hugh Tracey Karimba with Pickup comes with African tuning, from low A to high A with slightly flat 3rds, 6ths, and 7ths. The notes don't fall on the exact western intervals. 17 Keys, includes a built in piezo-electric pickup and 1/4 inch jack. Plug this kalimba into a guitar amp, effects processor, PA system, or a direct box using a standard 1/4 inch guitar chord, and you are on your way to rocking out on this new age African instrument. The karimba is similar to the mbira from Zimbabwe. It has 17 tines organized in two rows, but at first glance the organization isn't logical. However, as you begin to play, you find that the inherent logic of this instrument lets you sound like a traditional African musician! Traditionally used in ceremonies to speak with one's ancestors in Shona ceremonies, this instrument has a lot of soul built into it. Made in Africa.
