Mine came with the hard case & everything else except the thumb protectors so now I need to purchase separately which is disappointing!
I watched a you tube video at first, never played an instrument or read the music in my life & I'm 46 & I alway's wanted to learn something someday so now is my chance!
I love mine with the sun stamp, I am having an issue with the manual/song book "You are my sunshine" & I don't know what the dashes works when trying to play it! Get it you won't be sorry & it's good for children & adults too!

Comes with a soft fabric pouch so I recommend getting a hard case separately if you intend to travel with it.
Also includes a metal tuner, stickers for the keys and a pair of thumb picks which I didn't need. The thumb picks will not fit large thumbs.
The engraved music notes and numbers on the keys are very useful and I didn't need to paste on the stickers for reference.
If you're experienced in playing musical instruments and can play by ear rather than depending heavily on music score sheets, you will be able to learn to play the kalimba even more easily.
The kalimba is fun and relaxing for everyone, including those who don't play other musical instruments, since it is barely capable of making any bad sounds. Unlike wind instruments, this instrument can be shared as well.
