Mbiras by Tuning

MBIRA sells many mbira tunings. Our video lessons are in B-pitch nyamaropa tuning. G-pitch nyamaropa tuning is used with marimbas and Western instruments. If you need a B flat nyamaropa mbira and they are out of stock, contact us to find out which B nyamaropas can be tuned down for an extra charge.

Tuning instructions and descriptions, and recordings of each tuning that you can tune your mbira to, are here. To listen to music in a specific mbira tuning to decide if you like it, go here. If you visit Zimbabwe, know that these tuning names are not commonly used there, as most villages have only one tuning and therefore it doesn’t need a name.
