It was the sound--elusive but haunting--that drove a 25-year-old college student, a few classes short of a degree in psychology, to build a marimba from scratch.

Marimba One is pleased to announce its endorsement of percussionists Sandra Valette and Mathieu Demange.

Arcata Firm Sends Top-Quality Marimbas Round The Globe

    Josh moved to Humboldt County to complete his degree in music and he never left. Instead, he joined marimba one®, first as a sander, then in the resonator department, and eventually focused his skills on tuning and acoustical research.

    Every marimba we build is a “voiced” marimba.  Each piece of rosewood on each of our marimbas has been through a long journey to make it onto a marimba one®. 

Send us your photo or short clip (30 sec or less) featuring mallets and pets. Winner gets 2 pairs of Marimba One mallets of their choice or a mallet bag. Email Competition closes February 15. Have fun :)
