"I have played many vibraphones and I always felt that even though it is an incredible beautiful instrument, it was still in a development process. I always thought that overtones tuning, evenness in tone and frame portability was still not achieved for instrument makers; until I saw the One Vibe demonstration, and I realized that Marimba One has made a huge step forward in developing this young instrument."
