Here are the pics of a Bass and a Baritone Marimba which I built for my classroom. The bars are made of pauduk and the frames are made mostly Oak and some Ash. The marimbas are able to be broken down and folded for transport. Any suggestions and comments are welcome. If you want to hear how they sound check out the media section of my site mmsmarimbas.com.
