Yamaha 4.3 Octave Intermediate Acoustalon Marimba - Product Information

Yamaha 4 1/3 Octave Acoustalon marimba with A25-C76 range, three-position resonator slots, height adjustable frame, dual angle supports and horizontal leg supports. The Acoustalon bars are produced from fiberglass reinforced plastic in a one-step manufacturing process to provide exceptional durability and a pure tone. The scientifically designed Sonic Tones Holes produced in this process give Acoustalon bars a tone similar to rosewood. The graduated tone bars are a professional feature that promotes tone quality, volume and playability.

The resonators of the YM-2400 feature a cut-away design to reduce overall weight of the instrument and also feature a 2-tracking system that allows resonator height adjustment for pitch and tone control.

The ability to adjust the height of the YM-2400 promotes proper playing technique and comfort. A lower crossbar support helps to ensure the integrity and life of the contemporary styled height adjustable frame.

Comments:

The description says "with a tone similar to rosewood." The word similar is used rather loosely. Yes, the acoustalon has a very distinctive tone, but that's not necessarily a good thing. The idea of synthetic fiberglass bars is to increase durability, but maintain quality of sound. The acoustalon is much more durable; you could probably play it with a rock. However, it does not even come close to sounding as good as a rosewood marimba. It does cost somewhere around five thousand dollars less than a rosewood, so it's your choice. Money or tone quality?

Comments:

Excellent marimba all around. I personally own this marimba and it is great from beginning marimbists to much higher performers. Great sound and extremely compact design for taking apart and moving.
