Sweet sounds of the electric Kalimba

Constructed with some parts I had lying around and a few from the hardware store. As you can hear, the dry sound is a little bass heavy. I might try adding a few tines and tuning to a different scale.

Hmm … bass == good! I wouldn’t change it one bit. [via Synthtopia]
