The Colour Palette is a 17-key kalimba that incorporates on-board reverb and delay effects and a 1/4″ output for recording. Musician Simon the Magpie demonstrates the instrument’s sounds and capabilities, then mods it to his own whim. It’s currently sold out, but you can sign up to be notified when more are in stock.
The kalimba is a small musical instrument that’s played by thumping your fingers on its springy metal keys. But the same idea can be DIYed using a bunch of popsicle sticks, screwed in place at varying lengths along a board. Mr. Mash shows off his homemade instrument, along with an abridged version of his how-to video.
