          Fun instrument to kill time, and relatively easy to learn

          I was super excited to receive this Kalimba, since I miss playing my piano. It's overall a relatively easy instrument to learn, but takes practice. The craftmanship of the product is clean and I love the color (reminds me of my violin). If you're looking to pick up a hobby, I suggest purchasing this one. It comes with instructions, some easy songs to play, and preps all first time users on how to play it.

          Grandson 17 years old and love playing any type of musical product..he loved the Kalimba

          we gave the GECKO Kalimba 17 keys thumb piano to our 17 yrs. old grandson for Christmas...he has a lots of talent for music and playing in the band at high school and at church....when he opened this gift ..he had a big smile on his face, he said he had seen it on the computer and wanted it and within 2 days he could play a lots of different songs and music on it..

          Wonderful instrument but hard to press on high pitch notes

          I absolutely love this little instrument. The sound is beautiful and it is easy to learn. It took me about 6 hours to learn the first song with both single and playing notes. There are only 2 complaints are: 1) it is hard to press on the high pitch notes. I don't know whether it is due to craftsmanship, or it is supposed to be like this. I hope it will be better with more use 2)

          Beautiful piece and easy to learn.

          I'm not very good at this yet, because I haven't had this very long, but I definitely have a lot of fun with it. Very beautiful and fun to play. Not hard to learn how to play it and provides hours of entertainment.

          The perfect little companion.

          I have sensory issues and severe depression. And having this is such a blessing. I just sit in a quiet place and play a few songs until I am well enough to go about my day.

          It’s also really easy to learn. Even take like an hour a day and you can learn a few songs in a month. Great for kids and adults.
