Slow shipment. I ordered a Gecko after ordering this. I can already play the Kalimba by the time this thing arrived!! Good wood. Better than web picture. Gecko G key (15 reed) is louder and more sonorous. High notes a bit tight and thin. This thing is more than twice the cost of Gecko. Not worth. There is buzzing the the second highest E note. Comes in less in tune compared with Gecko K15CAP.
It took 22 days to arrive from China to Europe, what is very reasonable. The kalimba sounds fine, just like Gecko kalimbas. It was well tuned in C and has a full, deep sound. It comes with a bag and a Chinese instruction book that is an exact copy of the Gecko booklets, but no wiping cloth. The kalimba feels solid, but the sandalwood isn’t as shiny as on the pictures. I specifically asked a very dark Woodman, but the seller never answered to that request and my kalimba is rather ordinary brown with pale wood stripes.
