Amazing

Comments:

My school rented one of these marimbas and it sounded great! The bars were synthetic which lacked something that rosewood brigs to the table, but an amazing marimba nonetheless. If you want a top-notch performance marimba, invest in the rosewood, but the synthetic is cheaper and still sounds great

Fantastic Budget Marimba

Comments:

Let me start off by saying that I am anything but a marimba expert. I wish I were an expert at many things, including the marimba, but it naturally takes time and practice getting anywhere close to that. That's where getting this marimba steps in. I have had this instrument set up for a bit over a month now, and I am very happy about the purchase. It's certainly a nice looking student marimba. As far as appearance, the only complaint I might have is that this padouk version of the Majestic Deluxe instrument doesn't have as sleek of resonators as the synthetic and rosewood versions. Then again, since this is an instrument for me to be learning as a hobby... well, I guess that isn't really an issue. The padouk bars certainly are nice to look at, too. The frame seems fairly well thought out. I'm sure higher end ones are much nicer, but this feels solid. The cart does not have any manner of play to it, the end pieces and rails are fairly solid once the instrument is assembled. I also appreciate the simplicity of setup/teardown of the instrument. This is, fortunately, not something that I have an urgent need to do, but when I do need to move it, it is not a serious chore. I do wish, however, that Majestic had some manner of case, at least for the bars. I'm sure I can fashion something together when the time comes. Additionally, the hand-crank for height adjustment is super smooth and incredibly easy to work with. You can't ask for adjustments to be any easier. You really can't. I suppose the more important part of the instrument would be the sound. Well, again, I am no expert on marimbas. I have never had the fortune to play on anything other than kelon bars prior to owning this padouk Majestic marimba. I will say that the padouk sound is very satisfying. I can't speak to the durability of these padouk bars, but so far I am happy. The only slight quirk I am noticing with the sound of this instrument is on A2 and A#2, the furthest-left bars on either rail pair. I don't know if something is being muffled, if I have set something up slightly off, or it's just a physics thing with cheaper instruments, but the sustain is noticeably shorter on A2 and A#2. B2 and above are all great. The shortened decay does not affect much in context, but single, spaced-out notes on these two bars can stand out. Overall, this is a fantastic purchase. I have been having obscene amounts of fun diving into more marimba knowledge, working some pieces, and writing my own new material. I think this marimba is going to last me a pretty good run of time.

I bought this marimba last week, and I'm very happy. It has a very beautiful sound, of course the sound it's kind different than the rosewood but for this incredible price it's excellent!! I recommend this product so much!!
