Tuning Frequency

The Jewel Marimba is offered in A432, A440, A442, and A443 tuning frequencies. Other tuning frequencies are available upon request.

All tone bars on the Jewel Marimba are made from ethically sourced Honduran Rosewood and are tuned by Marimba One’s Master Tuners, guaranteeing you a world-class sound.

Bar size is larger resulting in a bigger, warmer, and darker sound than our concert marimbas.

Our Patent Pending Suspension Hardware is designed to attenuate the upper harmonics emphasizing the fundamental frequency of the bar, making it very dark and warm.

Just Tuning

Just tuning means that the musical distance between the notes is based on the naturally occurring harmonic series. The result is an unusually warm and harmonically rich sound. The keyboard is diatonic - the “white keys” on a piano. Meaning that all the notes will sound good together. We also offer our Marimba One concert tuning on the Jewel marimba.

Voicing of the Jewel Marimba

Our Jewel marimbas are tuned by Marimba One master tuners. The voicing process is identical to our concert marimba voicing process in that we match warmth and resonance on all the bars so that as you play up and down the keyboard the sound is always even and balanced. We use a variety of Rosewood grain patterns for both beauty of sound and wood. Because we are using larger tone bars on the Jewel marimba than our concert marimbas, the Jewel has a much bigger and warmer sound than do our concert marimbas.
