Don’t ask me how to play it or even say it but we have a customer making musical instruments from our basswood.  He says,

“I make these instruments called kalimba kasters,  it’s a cross between an electric guitar and a thumb piano.”

“I’ve found that your basswood has the best tonal characteristics and workability versus other woods. The fact that this wood is also harvested from Wisconsin makes it even better.”

Here’s a link to his website Dich Studios.
