Seven new marimba builders!

The world now has seven more marimba builders! We had a great workshop last weekend and were super productive, building 2 full marimbas that will be going to a local school in need.

One more summer workshop coming up this weekend, with a couple spots still available if you want to cool off in Bellingham, WA.

with Roger, Holly, Keith, Maria, Jordan, Frank and Kristy
We purposely made the low-riding soprano with a mish-mash of different wood pieces found in my shop - cherry, padauk, purpleheart, mahoganies... With buzzers, it sounds very consistent across the scale - as good a sound as any soprano I've made. And fully integrated, you could say.

  1. Brazilian Rosewood, all around viewed as the best sounding wood for acoustic guitars. In light of its shortage and allure, there are heaps of myths and secrets related with it. When discussing Brazilian rosewood and American guitar making, the discussion begins with the Martin Guitar Company. I find a very good website for the Best palm sander reviews, If you want you can visit this site.
