    New Xylophone Day!

    [​IMG]

    Pretty straight forward. Three octaves, C to C. I love the sound and I bought some very soft mallets that produce a very warm wooden thump. I want to put some basic parts on acoustic recordings.

    I have an Akia Miniak keyboard that produces some cool tones but this sounds better for those hollow wooden percussion tones.

    Xylophone. I’m not nuts. Well.....I might be a little nuts. With all the time that I’m spending at home these strange days it’s cool to have a unique new instrument.

    1600346851234412117074592883106.jpg I need one of these! I use this for added spice. Sometimes doubling other instruments to good effect.

    So how long before you can blast out this piece of genius?? I want the spins as well, we're not messing around.

    Seriously though, that looks cool!

    I'm sure the neighbors would appreciate the sound of that amplified LOUDLY thru a Fender Twin...but the real question: maple or rosewood?
