Marimba One Hosts International Marimba Academy
in Arcata, California

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

Yes, marimba one is turning 30 this year. It was in 1987 that  marimba one was launched. We're celebrating with special offers to thank you, musicians who've brought us all this way.

Join the Heartland Marimba Festival Academy July 9-16 at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Points to gain a wealth of hands-on/real world experience and knowledge by working closely and performing with world-class artists.

World-renowned musician Katarzyna Mycka will host her IKMMA Marimba Academy in Arcata, California from June 2-11 this summer.

After years of R&D and listening to many vibraphones, Marimba One™ has released the One Vibe™ by Marimba One™: quality, full projection and warm resonance across the entire keyboard.

Marimba One's commitment to building a sustainable future.

The largest drum and percussion tradeshow in the world, PASIC, will welcome Marimba One among its exhibitors.

   For a marimba keyboard, the ideal humidity is between 40% and 50%.  We recommend using a de-humidifier if the room has high humidity, otherwise the bars will not resonate properly. Another possible cause for lack of resonance is the temperature in the room where the marimba has been stored.
