After taking delivery of our Marimba One the first thing that strikes you is the sheer craftsman ship of all the component parts and the incredible ease of assembly. Unlike many percussion instruments with many parts, the Marimba One just fits together like a perfect pair of the finest gloves – first time!
We had opted for the Basso Bravo resonators and these really do produce the truest and most pure bass notes I’ve ever heard on a marimba. That irritating ‘pingy’ harmonic of the bottom end notes are now a thing of the past leaving just a full bodied, rounded bass resonance.
This is an instrument of the highest quality and beauty and has made a big impression on our students with many of them saying ‘it really makes you play better’!! What more could I want?
