Very similar to the last three, but much bigger. This one has a cherry soundboard with maple sides and beech front and back. The base is 1/4” lauan ply. One side got strangely muted and persussive once the soundbaord was set into the box while the other side remained resonant. It works well, but it was not by design. I was hoping that both sides would stay resonant. This was given as a present to my niece who apears to really like it. Video link below so that you can hear how the two different sides sound.
The mallets are super balls with 1/4” oak dowels attached.

The dimensions are 22” x 9” x 8”
