Nice P3 Marimba Build
(Burton Greifer)

Burt is from Rhode Island - and a true gentleman. He has built this P3 marimba beautifully and even included a small modification to the resonator banks. Thanks for taking the time to actually POST these photos Burt!

marimba resonator modification
"Dear Jim,

I made one modification on the resonators. Instead of attaching the aluminum strap to the tubes, I simply used double anchor screws. Since I do not intend to move the marimba anyplace it shouldn't be a problem. Besides I now can remove a resonator in order to fine tune, as the sound is good but a couple of the tubes need a little more work. I think the overall tones are quite musical and not clunky wooden sounds.

I have subscribed to Percussion KEYS today. Let The Adventure Begin!!

Best Wishes
