Latin Percussion has expanded its range of ethnic percussion instruments with new Kalimbas available in two sizes. The nine-key LP Kalimbas are available in Solid Natural Ash or Deep Cherry finished versions. Both have nine chrome-plated metal tines laid out in a C pentatonic scale that produce clear and pure notes, which, when blended together, create layered tones. The alternative Deep Cherry finished version features a chambered Siam Oak body for added resonance. The 17-key Kalimba, finished in Deep Cherry, features a chambered Siam Oak body that fits comfortably in a player’s hands and has a built-in vibrato side ports to add a sonic “wah” element to the sound.
