Catania 12-Note Gourd Piano
The Catania 12-note kalimba spans one and a half octaves. The low note is G, but it is in the key of C. There is one entire octave plus from middle C to high C, plus three notes below middle C and one more note above the high C. It turns out that you can do a lot of music with these 12 notes!
The gourd amplifies the sound, and covering the sound holes modulates the tone to give a "wah" sound. This is a very good sounding kalimba, and is a great value.
The face wood comes in Australian lacewood (as in the photo) or African paduak.
We now offer the Catania 12-Note Kalimba in seven different tunings - click here to learn about (and hear) the different tunings. If you are confused, don't worry - the simple thing is to just get it in the tuning it usually comes in, in C major!
