Enhanced/Classic

We select exceptional bars for projection, evenness, and balance to craft our Enhanced Keyboard. Using our Enhanced Keyboard with our Classic Resonators creates an even longer ring time than our Traditional Keyboards. The acoustic balance guarantees an even-sounding instrument that is highly resonant.

Enhanced/Classic Reviews

Ron, Thank you so much for the amazing instrument! I love practicing and performing with it! Having such a great instrument is very special to me and I couldn't have asked to anything better. You make amazing marimbas!

Cat Wilson

Thank you Ron!!!!!!

We are so happy with our beautiful instrument. YOU are the best builder of marimbas in the world today as far as I'm concerned. Today was the first day out of the studio for it and though we have many other marimbas at KSU, all of my students chose to perform solos on our new beauty! Thank you once again for the awesome work that you all do at Marimba One. We feel so lucky to have "scored" one finally.

Thank you very much for this wonderful instrument, I played it for hours. It was verynice doing business with you and I thank you with all my heart

Wouter De Winne

The trip to London and audition for the Royal College of Music went very well, but I will not hear the results until December.   I performed on one of your insturments and loved it!!! The tone quality and resonance throughout the entire keyboard was flawless.  I had played on a Yamaha a few times prior to travelling to London and there is no comparison.

Is it sacrilege to say that I never liked the marimba very much? I am sorry to say, but I didn't really. However, playing Ron's instruments convinced me that there were real possibilities that I had not encountered before. So I bought an instrument from Marimba One. The marimba and its sound are beautiful of course, but the thing that convinces me is how much I love playing it! Now I am involved in two marimba commissions and have scheduled several recitals of marimba music. I would never have believed that was possible!!!

Steve Schick - University of San Diego, California

You guys are seriously the best. Overnighting a marimba bar so that I have a superb sounding instrument for a concert...top notch customer service. It shows real care and passion for what you do, not to mention taking care of a customer. 

Michael Haldeman

Finally I've got the marimba today!  Thank you very much for the amazing instrument!  I am just happy with EVERY part of this instrument.  Especially the sound is great!  I love it.  I couldn't stop playing today, I'm already addicted. 

I was surprised that my old repertoires sounded different on this new marimba.  I've got a totally new voice to sing my music.  This marimba allows me to go to a much deeper place of music. I really hope it is not a dream...my new partner is sooooo great!  A biggest drearm has come true on a beautiful sunny day:)  My marimba life has changed since today!!!

I really appreciate all of you.  And I'm proud to be an owner of this fantastic instrument!!

Shoko Sakai

Thank you so much for the wonderful instrument you've created for me! It is truly a joy to practice and perform on! Absolutely lovely!

Lori Fulton

The Marimba One going to make a great addition to our percussion ensemble performances! Cudos to you, Ron – your instruments is even better than I remember them being.

Thank you very much! I love my marimba. It's a really beautiful instrument, and the sound is just amazing!! And your mallets are great too, probably the best mallets I have ever had. Also, thanks to your staff (in my case Morgan Crane), the whole process of buying this instrument went so smooth. All my questions were answered right away

Anders Kristiansen

WOW!! Thank you so much for this amazing piece of art! I can't believe the way this instrument sounds and looks! I am very happy with my decision on Marimba One and I will be recommending your company to anyone that asks.


Thank you all again so much for your amazing service and work!

Percussively,

John Jones

Thank you and your staff for making such a wonderful pair of 5-octave marimbas. I'm very happy and the students are too, and congratulations for not only keeping your high quality standards but improving them through the years.

We got the new Marimba One! It's a really beautiful instrument and sounds absolutely fantastic. 

Thank you for that! Let's be in touch!

 

Pasi Suomalainen - Helsinki Philharmonic

I received my marimba yesterday and am absolutely thrilled. You know how fantastic it is, so I don't have to gush on and on, but I just wanted to thank you for the judgment, creativity, intelligence, and care that went into this instrument. And the way it was delivered -- packed into the bags -- was genius.

Anne Szabla

I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that the marimba arrived safely yesterday and it is beautiful. I couldn't be happier.
Thank you so much for the wonderful instrument and for all the help. We're lucky to have you in the business. 

Jed Blodgett, Juan Diego Catholic High School

As I type this, a recent graduate who is pursuing degrees in both Music Education and Performance is practicing on the marimba one.  Our current and past students are loving the instrument!

Thank you for your attention to detail and concern for customer care!
