Amazon Customer 2 The kalimba appears used — there are sticker marks on the tines that I’m unable to remove. Fingerprints and dust are all over the tines. The tine fret board is not straight - it’s crooked. Also, the tines are all at different heights, so it looks very weird. There are no dead tines, but some of them sound very dull. The tines with sticker marks have dull engravings, as if they’ve been recycled. The wood is worn down, and the finishing paint is flaking.
