Datalimba (Hard Disk Drive Kalimba)

An idea struck me like a lightning bolt – a hard disk drive housing could be made into the sound box of a kalimba.

Bingo!! The solid metal housing resonates and amplifies the crystal clear sound. I’ve got a bunch of used hard disk drives. Thank God I didn’t dispose of them.

My friend, meanwhile, came up with a cool name for this musical instrument:  Datalimba !!
