On the negative side:
On reception of the product, the tuning did not appear to me of the most irreproachable, the small lamella of LA was a hair under the tone, which had a kind of natural chorus (annoying when it is not desired)

Being used to playing another kalimba, in comparison, I found the difference in height blade-box too large according to the blades (one blade on two has the same height, the so-called "high" blades are too many, making Less fluid playing with the thumb)
I was especially disappointed by the bad sound reproduction of the device, the acoustic sound remains correct, but once connected to a sound, the sound is imprecise, almost deaf despite adjustment on the equalizer of the mixer, And whenever the thumb strikes the body: a "ploc" is heard. (Certainly a piezo sensor) the natural harmonics do not emerge in electrified.
Certainly, practice to play it in concert because it avoids the connection of a microphone to amplify it, but finally nothing is worth the repica by a static microphone (this is my personal taste)
In terms of the positives (there are some!)
The bill of the wooden case is correct, the location of the hole to play the whawha with the thumb well located. The model is equipped with a jack output and in addition a volume potentiometer.
It is one of the few existing models to offer an incorporated micro system.
As for the price: too expensive!
