I bought this as a Christmas present for my wife this year, but just had to give it to her shortly after it arrived. Since then, she has played it every day. She had previously purchased a chromatic kalimba from Seeds but found it to be very quiet, and also in need of almost daily tuning. I recently tuned the ChillAngels kalimba for the first time since we received it four weeks ago. It is a lovely instrument, sounds wonderful and my wife loves it. We have always believed in buying high quality instruments (and are fortunate enough to be able to). I strongly recommend this instrument to those interested in a chromatic kalimba. You will likely not need to purchase another one in your life.
I LOVE my Chill Angels vibrato kalimba!! I’ve been on the hunt to find the perfect kalimba for a long time and now I’ve finally found *the one*. This is my 11th kalimba (YES 11th!!). After owning 10 kalimbas from various popular brands, I got tired of the limited range of notes, complete lack of customer service, dead or stuff tines, and questionable quality of the instrument.
The quality of Chills Angels’ kalimba is unparalleled. This is not a toy. When they said it was an heirloom-quality instrument, they really meant it. The body feels so sturdy and well-crafted. It is by far the most elegant kalimba on the market. A lot of effort was put into the design of the kalimba, the packaging, and the user guide. With 36-keys that don’t repeat, I am able play just about any song! And best of all...NO DEAD TINES, which is such a common issue with hollows.
Seren is so sweet and kind--you can tell she really cares about her customers and wants to spread the joys of being a musician, no matter if you are a beginner or experienced. This is a business you can feel good about supporting. I'm beyond happy with everything so far!
