Marimba One keyboards come with different options for resonators, keyboards, and frames. The resonators can either be classic or basso bravo. The classic gives a well-rounded, dynamic sound. The basso bravo resonators give the marimba a great bass-boost with a darker, warmer, stronger bass tone. The Soloist frame is of a custom height - they’re made for your height! The Izzy is a light weight frame that’s easy to move around. The wave frame is heavy duty and durable with options to mount any sort of percussion on it. The 3100 is extra durable, and the height can be adjusted. The Rosewood keyboards come in three different levels - Traditional, Enhanced, and Premium. The Premium has the highest level of warmth, timbre and sustain. This allows you to configure the right sound (and price level) for you!

Additional Marimba Ideas For You
The marimba definition is an instrument made up of wooden bars struck by rubber or yarn mallets, but there’s a lot more that goes into it. There’s a lot of options when it comes to marimbas. When you’re selecting a marimba, the first thing you want to consider is the size. The full standard size is going to be a 5.0 octave - this gives any player a great range. The notes for a 5.0 octave marimba start at a low C and have four more C’s. A little smaller size that’s also very common is a 4.3 octave size. Next, you want to think about the material composition of the keys. The most common types of wood are Rosewood and African Padauk.
Generally, for single drums (not the overheads) and guitar and bass amps, you’re going to want to use a dynamic microphone. These are a little less sensitive and a little more durable than condenser mics. They use a coil’s movement to form a magnetic field. The microphone responds to pressure from sound waves to move that coil. Shure, AKG, and Samson microphones all have great dynamic mic options. These tend to be a little less expensive than other models, which is good since a good studio will have several of these! Check out our mic kits and mic bundles to see all of your options if you need a few.
There are also some marimbas with synthetic keys - they sound surprisingly good for an excellent point. These are made by Mode Marimbas. The great part about these keys is that they’re completely durable and weatherproof, being synthetic. And they really do sound like Rosewood! This is another to check out in our warehouse if you’re in Denver, you’ll be impressed.
