Inspired by the famous and in-demand Deagan model 870 and 872 xylophones, our forward thinking design takes the M1 xylophone to a new level. Expanding upon JC Deagan’s curved #1 and #4 rails and resonators, we have created a xylophone with unparalleled clarity and projection. The rosewood used to make our xylophone bars comes from Belize and was personally selected in 2012 by Ron Samuels. This is the hardest rosewood that M1 has ever used—so hard in fact that it is nearly impossible to pit with normal playing techniques and mallets. The bars have a brilliance to them that no other manufacturer is making today, with an evenness and balance that will make the M1 xylophone the preferred choice. All of our xylophones are voiced using the same processes and techniques that we use on all of our marimbas. The concert xylophone is built with a lightweight, durable frame similar to the One Vibe with 4” locking casters.

Xylophone Features

3.5 or 4.0 Octave Rosewood Keyboard 

Rosewood bars available in our 3 grades: Traditional, Enhanced and Premium. This is extremely hard rosewood that is nearly impossible to dent with normal playing techniques and mallets.

Lightweight and durable with a powder coated black finish. The frames feature our gas-spring Izzy height adjustment with built in tape measure.

Unique Design

We curved the #1 & #4 rails and resonators to enhance the brilliant sound and provide maximum projection
 

Acoustic Combinations
