A Big Bass

Just completed a nice and big bass marimba, destined with a complete set of Zimbabwean style instruments for the Music Department at University of Washington. 8 inch tubes from Low C to G, individually removable, then a cluster of 6 inch tubes on the upper end. Buzzers are located in the plugs of the tubes.

The funnest part of this build was under the hood, so to speak:


  1. Nice! Where do you get the thin walled resonator tube material?

  2. Hi Justin, with help, I found the 8" thin wall tube at:
