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

I wasn’t able to get to your site via the link. Also, when I finally found your video it said that the plugin wasn’t supported. Since I don’t know which plugin it is, I couldn’t install it to watch your video.
