Testimonials & Reviews

"Yesterday I received the kalimba and I'm delighted with it. It's perfect in sound, tuning and measure and not only a fine instrument, but also a masterpiece of traditional artwork - both elegant and sturdy. Congratulations to Dingiswayo (I lìke the nice signature he had left on the instrument) for his work and many thanks to you for making it possible and the smooth service. I will recommend Juma Instruments to my friends and other musicians." - Roland Gerard, September 2016

"I special ordered a 19 Key Kalimba in the Red Wood in a G Major. Even though it cost more it was well worth it. You can tell the quality of it by the weight and the craftsmanship of the instrument is second to none. The keys are well tuned and plays beautiful giving out a sweet peaceful melody." Ardree Daniels, August 2016

"From initial contact with KALIMBAshop to holding this gorgeous instrument in my hands: i'm full of praise. - very good and nice communication, - quick delivery, - no detour via custom office, - instrument arrives carefully packed and perfectly tuned. Metal and wood feel lovely, tone is clear, sustain is tempered (not too rich – just as i hoped for) and fuzz can be accentuated by the way playing. As a beginner, I appreciate the smaller size. 
Thank you, Dingiswayo and Charlotte!" - Martina, August 2016
