Product came with nothing. It came untuned (I expected that) but it was impossible for me to tune it right because I didn’t have the tools to do so. After trying to tune it with pliers and my fingers, I gave up cause my fingers started to really hurt. I found another kalimba that has a hammer, stickers, and an amp connector for less than this kalimba alone. I loved the color of it though.

Nice-sounding Kalimba, easy to tune. However, metal keys began changing color (chipping layers of metal) very quickly, after first two weeks of playing this instrument, which is disappointing & frustrating, especially after spending so much money. You expect better quality as per the price. If the metal keys were better quality, I would give this instrument a better review.

Hard to figure out how to tune it. Instructions aren't good - not in English.

When I got this, I almost cried. I've always wanted a kalimba. Just a note that it does not come tuned in any way. The small instructions in the bottom of the box, however, gave clear instructions on how to tune it to the key of D. You can of course tune however you see fit.

Otherwise, feels great in the hands, no jagged edges or sharp points. No cracks, dents, or otherwise unsightly scratches on it. I may try to buy another at some point in the future to have a second key rather than retuning. Also, make sure you have fingernails on your thumbs or you're going to hurt.
