The Hugh Tracey TM Alto Kalimba with Pickup, Flat Board, comes tuned diatonically in the key of G, from low G to high G for a full 2 octaves. 15 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. Of course, this kalimba can still be played acoustically. The tines are mounted on a board instead of the resonant box. The TM Alto with Pickup doesn't give you the "wah" sound that you can get with the resonant box Alto Kalimba. The flat board can be played against a table or window pane as a soundingboard. The flat board also permits the use of the right index finger on the up-stroke, a technique used with the mbira. The TM Alto Kalimba with Pickup gets its name because the body is shaped like the AMI TradeMark kalimba logo. The Hugh Tracey Alto Kalimba is the original kalimba made by African Musical Instruents in Grahamstown, South Africa since 1960. Made from kiaat wood and high quality spring steel, this is a real musical instrument and is easy to play, not just a pretty coffee table ornament. Made in Africa.
