Kris Kalimba is a hand-crafted kalimba (African thumb piano) with a 1/4" input jack for line recording. Unlike traditional kalimbas, Kris Kalimba was created with a wooden slab (instead of a hollow coconut shell) without a sound hole and each metal rod is cut to a specific length to form a tuned diatonic C major scale. 



For maximum playability, the original one-octave (C3 to C4) has been stretched to 2.5 octaves (G2 to C5). All natural pitches are indicated with green keys on the Kontakt keyboard and all pitch-stretched notes are indicated with red keys. Each note has 4 round-robin samples and 2 dynamic layers (p and mf).

This delicate bell-like instrument is perfect for spreading holiday cheer in your tracks.
