Good quality
De Vries, 03.02.2020
A fine quality instrument, comfortable enough to hold and play. The sound is quite satisfying, especially the lower keys, and the holes in the box allow for an easy vibrato effect. Unfortunately the highest keys have a small background noise that’s not easy to avoid and are not as loud as the rest. Easy to clean and keep in the cloth bag that comes with it. Had no need for the stickers but it’s good the option is there. As a first-time Kalimba-user it's perfect!

Géniale !
Draleg, 31.12.2020
Juste parfait, pour le prix j'ai un kalimba qui est juste et avec un sons plus que correct pour le prix.
A l'exception de 2 lamelles, il est arrivé jouable et correctement accordé!!
Plusieurs heures de jeux et il est toujours accordé.

Petits bémols mais pour le prix c'est "compréhensible":

- les lamelles les plus aux extrémités n'ont pas une résonance top top.
- les petits trous pour l'effet "wawa" sont plus là pour décorer car trop petits pour générer un effet convenable, mais ça peut être utile pour l'accrocher au mur.

Really nice!
bnascimento, 15.11.2020
Super strong built, with some extra 2 holes behind that I didn't know about (you can kind of use it to make it sound like a sansula, not pro here just guessing). The higher notes are a bit hard to play and making the sound thiner, but I really don't know if that's just me ^^'
Overall it's a great sounding kalimba!

I love the TK17-R Kalimba!
Plappo, 14.10.2020
I love the TK17-R Kalimba!
Such a calming instrument to play. The tone is held for a surprisingly long time and it plays louder than you'd think - It fills the room!

Pros: Durable, clean tone, intuitive to play.
Cons; Needs tuning as frequently as a guitar - But hey, it's an instrument!

Pro tip; You can use any kind of tuner for it! And you can put a piezo mic inside of it to get a real clean recording of it (Or just use a regular microphone, you do you...)

Humble but great
Francisco Gangrena, 18.11.2020
The sound is great and the tunning is spot on. The body of the kalimba doesn't look very robust but it is still well worth the price. Perfect for beginners. However, I would prefer it unvarnished.

Great feel and sound. Highly recommended! If you're new to a kalimba, make sure to put some notes or numbers on the straws to be able to read tabs and stuff.

Lydian lydian lydian
Earl Langoustine, 14.12.2020
This thing is awesome! I sometimes annoy my wife by sitting on the couch and tuning it. Normally it's in C Major but I find making a couple of the tines sharp and putting it into C Lydian is rather more pleasing. Very nice tone, sounds good with some effects if you stick a contact mic in there.

Bien pour mon utilisation
MrvnHns, 26.05.2020
Utilisée pour de la relaxation/musico-thérapie, à ma première impression je l'ai trouvée un peu "jouet", mais avec du recul elle est assez solide, et surtout elle sonne pas mal du tout, je suis donc satisfaite de mon achat au niveau rapport qualité/prix

Good
Christos Athens, 26.09.2020
Good quality, nice sound.
The only problem is that the hole wasn't in the center of the calimba, but half a centimeter off.
Doesn't affect the instrument, for it's price I think is acceptable a small flaw.

Good kalimba
Kutay, 02.09.2019
I don't have any other kalimba to compare but i can say that it is very sturdy and nice quality kalimba. It comes with a soft bag. High notes sounds a little thin but i don't think it is bad.
