It all began with the Kalimba Klassik. At that time Hokema's only product was simply called ‘Kalimba’. Today, however, they offer a range of different versions and so they have renamed the original instrument ‘Kalimba Klassik’.
Hokema has been producing this instrument for over 20 years. While the outward appearance has hardly changed, they have constantly worked on improving details.
Like all HOKEMA Kalimbas, the Klassik can easily be played from the start. By plucking the tines with the thumbs, melodies can be composed immediately and creatively varied.
The underside of the mahogany body has two fingerholes which produce a vibrato effect when covered/uncovered.
The nine-tone set of tines is tuned to an a-minor pentatonic scale. As all the notes harmonise with each other, beginners also enjoy immediate success with their instrument.
