Hi marimba players.
My method “The Six Mallet Grip” is now available for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
Have a look here:
Would anyone happen to know where I might find a full version of the score for Nanae Mimura’s “Transformation of Pachelbel’s Canon”? The only version I can find (published by HoneyRock Publishing) is surprisingly incomplete, yet I have seen performances, so the music must be out there…? Somewhere?
Thanks!View More Music of Nanae Mimura

Hello! Did you get the DeMorrow Practice Marimba? I’m thinking about buying one. Would be kind enough to send me some pictures or a recording of the instrument? Thank you very much.

There is probably a leak somewhere if the resonator length is correct. The leak could be where the plug meets the inside of the resonator. Paint won’t matter. Aluminum tubes will make the bars louder.
Test the pitch of the resonator: hold you hand on the bar as you strike it, you should hear the pitch of the resonator, then compare that to the pitch of the bar. It’s nice having an adjustable resonator plug so that you can move it up and down until it sounds best.View More Re:Resonator material and tube length??

I’m a percussionist of many years who lucked into a fine old Deagan model 330 “Stu-Dette” marimba, a tiny one for sure at 2.5 octaves.
The bars are in fantastic shape, I will probably replace the grommets too but the big issue was this: the resonators are cardboard and it was missing the tubes (broken off) for the low C# and D#.
I’m a fix it guy, I do repairs on all sorts of instruments so I thought this would be fun to tackle.
I found 2 cardboard tubes the right diameter, I cut some aluminum caps for the bottoms, and I found a formula online for measuring resonator length for each pitch. I even found some paint that closely matches the paint on the other tubes.
Got it all together….the two replaced resonators aren’t quite as resonant.
Is it the cap on the tube? Should it be brass? Should the insides of the tubes be painted to be more reflective (this I thought of after I glued the caps on so I could only paint about half of the inside)? Should I use PVC or something as a reso tube? Or, could my calculations be off?
My resonators measure 30.8cm for the C# and 27.6cm for the D#.
Any leads would be great!
