Fibreglass gourd/deze – Made of strong and durable fibreglass, this gourd is ideal for travelling and heavy duty usage. It is a good alternative for the traditional natural gourd/calabashes and not as fragile.
A stick is used to hold the mbira/kalimba in the gourd. It can be a stick from wood/bamboo. Any strong straight stick from the tree will work. On the fibreglass gourd are bottle tops which function as buzzers. They are attached with metal wire and removeable.
