My Life's Calling
From the first time I heard and saw the marimba, I knew that this was my life’s calling. I’ve always had what I felt is the ultimate marimba sound in my head. It is this sound that drives marimba one and me to design and build our instruments.
With my team of master tuners, we have been dedicating a significant amount of time to studying the underlying acoustic characteristics of the marimba. This has led us down many interesting roads to discovering how to further refine and evolve them.
A few of our more recent discoveries has been harmonic filters. We are the first and only company to have developed these for marimbas. We take a resonator, analyze its sound spectrum, and engineer a filter to control the harmonic content of the resonator so that it seamlessly matches its neighboring resonators.
It’s all about making music instruments more musical.
Another recent innovation is our treble end on our marimbas. We have figured out how to coax out more sound by reengineering the interface between the bars and resonators. This results in a purer and louder sound on the treble end of our instruments.
For the musician, this means that mallet selection becomes easier.
