Hello Malleteers, 

I want to get an advance word out that Bourne Marimbas is again taking orders for marimbas. I am done doing much building myself (age related challenges) but I’ve taken on the help of professional woodworker (and jazz bassist) King Dahl. I will continue to handle the sales and delivery of instruments, and King will do the building and tuning, under my supervision until he has it down cold, which will not take much longer! King will work out of my shop in Bellingham and we plan to display his other fine creations upstairs in my office space. Big changes!

BTW, King is the force behind King Dahl Creative, and you can check out his woodworking achievements here:

As a musician, King has the ears to make a good marimba, and it wouldn’t surprise me if he adds a few tweaks to actually improve our product line! I’ll be updating my web site soon with current instruments and prices, and in the meantime you can email me through the link at the right if you have questions.

  1. I'm over-the-moon excited to join Tom in building his high-quality marimba designs! As a musician who cares deeply about providing every opportunity for aspiring musicians to learn, and as a woodworker who takes pride in building quality, hand-crafted pieces, creating the awesome musical instruments you expect from Bourne Marimbas is the perfect fusion these two passions.

    I'm looking forward to serving all new and established customers of Bourne Marimbas. And most importantly, doing our part to help you teach and mentor your students as they learn the universal benefits of a sound musical education. -King
