How to choose Kalimba keys

The number of Kalimba keys is not fixed, there are 5 tones, 8 tones, 10 tones, 17 tones, 21 tones and so on. Kalimba with different tone numbers is of course different. 5, 8, 10 Kalimba thumbnail: there are fewer keys, so the range is narrow, and the repertoire is easy to be restricted, but the operation is easier, it is suitable for beginners to get started quickly, the body is small, and it looks very exquisite. It is recommended for children or bought as ornaments.

17-tone Kalimba thumbnail: more keys, wider range, more songs can be played, harmony can also be played, playability is further increased, suitable for advanced learners and capable beginners. In short, many novices on the market will choose 17-tone Kalimba as an introduction, from the difficulty and range point of view, 17-tone is indeed more suitable for beginners.

21 tones: there are more keys, a wider range, and more and more complex songs that can be played, but it won't be too difficult to learn. I suggest that beginners can choose either 17-tone or 21-tone. They don't have to worry too much about not being able to learn.

Now the Kalimba on the market is basically improved, which is different from the original Kalimba. The development time of the improved Kalimba on the market is very short, so there are many technical defects in the process of production, the most obvious manifestation is that the piano is prone to murmur.

The reason for this murmur is that the shrapnel used by most manufacturers is straight shrapnel, and the contact area between the pressing piece and the shrapnel pressing part is very large, so it is easy to appear unstable or misplaced, so there will be a murmur. But now some merchants have solved this problem, making the shrapnel with radians, so that the pressing and shrapnel can be effectively pressed together, which can reduce the dislocation of pressing and shrapnel, and avoid noise when playing.

When you choose, try to understand clearly, it is best to choose arc pressing Kalimba, which can really reduce a lot of trouble in the later stage, after all, it is really difficult for beginners to adjust murmur by padding piano keys. Not all brands use this kind of curved shrapnel, and some low-end brands with tens of yuan will rarely use this kind of keys, so we must ask clearly before we buy it.
