Warm & Mellow Sound Perfect For Orchestral, Jazz, Rock & Pop
The WHD professional Marimba offers a high quality Marimba at a comparatively low price. With four octaves of Padauk bars ranging from the common C3 to C7, tuned to the UK standard of A=440Hz, over high quality aluminium resonators, this Marimba has a loud warm and mellow sound that is perfectly suited to orchestral playing, as well as being ideal for jazz playing, and even rock and pop.
The removable bars and aluminium resonators are housed in a high quality, solid American Light Oak frame, which not only looks great, but is also lighter than its metal equivalents. This all rests on a strong and durable coated steel body that is on castors with lockable brakes for easy movement and stability when playing. The body is also height adjustable, so players of all heights will be able to find a comfortable playing position.
With these high grade materials, combined with such top quality workmanship, why pay more? The WHD Professional Marimba is ideal for use in orchestras of all sizes, and for any other players looking for a high quality instrument on a budget.
