Kalimba Maitreya made of robinia wood knot with very rarely bird’s eye pattern.
One of the oldest and rarest instruments we have in the workshop.
Maitreya is a work of art with beautiful sound and visual that immediately catch attention especially when standing alone as a solitaire.

The peeled lower part reveals a thin layer of sapwood, the body of the kalimba consists mainly of heartwood, which stands out for its hardness.

Sound tuning

Maybe you remember the “do re mi fa so la si do” exercise from the music classes at your elementary school. It’s an indication of the seven tones in a diatonic scale. If you’ve just hummed this in your mind, you sang one octave. Ordinary, we tune these kalimbas to G major. This kalimba is tuned in special way – in diatonic E minor tuning.
