Cigar Box Electric Kalimba

This is a bit MacGyver, but the single coil pickup cigar box kalimba actually sounds pretty cool – and it’s a reminder that you don’t need to spend a lot of money to get an interesting new instrument.

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.
