Anybody else here who plays Marimba?

Recommended Posts

I gave my one awy when when i left LA in '84 and never bought another one. It was a Studio 49 model extra made for me with over 5 octaves. I plan to buy one again, maybee a Musser M500 Concert Grand Soloist.


Has anything changed in what's the best Marimba?


I may call Emil Richards or Joe Porcaro to ask for their advice, hope their are still alive.

Someone here actually built his own marimba, and actually posted his rendition of "Happy Birthday" for Lee Flier! He posted under the moniker "Hank the Cave Peanut", I think it might be Geoff Grace and Soapbox before that, but everyone changes their handle so often I can't keep track anymore.

The only "advancement" I know about is the marimba capo, which was an offshoot of the piano capo recently developed. Wewus can fill you in about that.

Disclaimer: This poster is full of shit in his second paragraph... :P
