Chromatic Bass

Was cleaning up the office and came across these shots from several years back - a Chromatic Bass Marimba I built for a school in Federal Way, WA. These are a blast to play, makes you want to join a band. A real handful to set up and transport, with lots of odd parts to fit together!

Note the angled bass tubes, otherwise this unit would be 6 feet tall.

..... not sure the angle cut on the tubes for the sharps and flats was necessary, but it looks cool.

... kind of has an Art Nouveau look about it.
