This is the place to learn about and buy the most innovative electric kalimbas on Earth!
My name is David Bellinger and I have been inventing and building kalimbas for 20 years. I have taken the beautifully simple African idea of a "thumb piano" and expanded it with my creativity, craftsmanship, and engineering into a modern electronic instrument.
All these years I have experimented widely and now I make kalimbas with wonderful features found on no other instruments on Earth. Each kalimba you will see here is individually handmade by me with a serial number stamped in its aluminum bridge. There is no factory, no sales force, just one dedicated artist-inventor making sawdust and magic.
