(C-Major Diatonic Scale)

MARIMBAS

Tenor Marimba

These marimbas are pitch-accurate melodic bar percussion instruments suitable for use in the classroom, pre-schools, music rooms, or the home.  Their reduced size makes them ideal for small children.

 

They are institutional quality and are not considered toys.  Notes represent the C-Major scale with the lowest pitch starting at Tenor C (C3).  The top note of the single octave version is Middle C (C4).  In the two-octave version, the top note is an octave above Middle C which is notated as C5.

 

Bars are made of straight-grained African Padauk.  Resonator box is made from poplar.  Finish is a semi-gloss, water-based clear coat that is wear-resistant to normal handling and playing.  Rounded corners are employed to provide child-friendly surfaces.  Yarn wound mallets and a Users Guide are included.

‚Äč

Children generally kneel to play these marimbas.  An optional marimba height stand is available that raises the playing surface height to 24-inches allowing the child to stand while playing.
