When Hugh Tracey started making his 17 key kalimba in South Africa in 1954, the instruments had one out of every three tines painted, on each side of the kalimba. These Treble kalimbas ended up with five painted tines, in the key of G, with the low note being B.
Now, a new crop of 17-note kalimbas from China has surfaced under names such as Gecko. WE are all in the key of C. So while looking exactly like the Treble Hugh Tracey kalimba, they are in a different key, which changes everything.
