This is a thumb piano I made a few years ago. Notice the genuine Canadian hardware. It's tunable within a small range, and makes a mellow twangy sound. Some sounds get clicky with the fingernails. I think it's cool, but it drives my wife and kids nuts. (It's really too bad I have no appreciable sense of rhythm.)

    I love the Kalimba used in music. Though, since I was young I've always called it a plinky box. You've done a wonderful job with this and I'd love to hear what it sounds like.
