"It is an honor to join the Marimba One family - for years, Ron and his team at M1 have dedicated themselves to crafting and perfecting the highest-quality instruments and mallets. It brings me great joy to share these exceptional tools with my students and showcase M1's products as a soloist and collaborator in my role as Artistic Director of Synergy Percussion. Not only do M1 instruments possess durability and affordability, but they also produce incredible sound across all genres and styles of percussion playing"
