Tila Pickup

129,00

TILA is a electroacoustic kalimba containing 15 tones, handmade on a resonant board. It’s tuned in diatonic tuning in G major. Professional kalimba with a remarkable tonal range. We make TILA with either single or double rows of lamellas – we recommend the double rows for a player with thicker thumbs, there’s more working space thanks to a smart distribution of the lamellas. You’ll for sure appreciate a generous tonal range and clear high quality sound.

For musicians and professionals

The pure sound and quality of the electroacoustic edition is provided by three sound sensors and a high quality jack. With that kind of instrument you can be a musician on a big stage. The gaining of a sound is well balanced and precise, thanks to the three piezo sensors. Professional musicians and all other fans of a good sound, who want to play kalimba with all sorts of effects and loops can appreciate this.

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. We can tune these kalimbas both to G major. Compared with a pentatonic kalimba this one has two more extra tones, which allow you to play known melodies, which will make you think harder.

Body of the instrument

This kalimba is also made of wood, which has been dried for several years. We hand-made it out of walnut tree wood, which is characteristic with its soft and warm tone. Its sound qualities are guaranteed by carefully picking the trees with which we then work. Every kalimba that goes through such process sounds even better in the long run – thanks to frequent playing.

Unlimited warranty

Your instrument will be taken care of. We provide free unlimited warranty with every kalimba for tuning and cleaning of the instrument.

Packed in a hand-painted box

Every instrument gets our attention. From choosing the right tree to work with, all the way to the final packaging, which will come to your doorstep. Everything is handmade. So is the cover box, which we paint by hand as a tribute to the instrument itself. It’s not only beautiful, but it can also be used as a resonance surface while playing.
