Drilled 4 x 7 maple kit 8 note   Order

New: 7/16” Solid Brass Tension Bar

Drilled and counter bored

14 note prototype. Made with wood from a repurposed piano.

Still more work to be done to make this a product.  14 notes is nice, but a little wider and we can get 2 full diatonic octaves.  The top is spruce, softwood is not ideal for kalimbas, the tone is warm but not as focused as hardwood.
