Minty kalimba


This Altoids tin electric kalimba appeals to me as a highly portable but still simple musical instrument, and you can plug it into an amp, too! Learn to make your own thanks to Deansrds’ tutorial.

    This is just the project I was looking for!

    One good question though, where can I find good material for the tines?

    I’ve made it, but when I’ve tried it. The sound was so silent. (I have no external audio box)
    Although, thanks for the tutorial.
