I really like the sound of marimbas but I'm not sure where to go to find good songs that strongly utilize this instrument. Send me your marimba bangers please.
I’m looking for marimba solos for next year, any recommendations
Pretty high on meth right now. I'm so glad meth doesn't make me horny and I actually get around to doing cool shit instead of jerkin my gerkin for 11 hours straight. Right now I'm tossing together this 1000 piece beaut of a dope ass nature scene. On top of that I found this unreal Spotify playlist of these cool as fuck African marimba beats and it is rubbin it's titties into the face of every pleasure centre of my brain.
Seriously if you thought jigsaw puzzles were a super sick time before meth, you don't know the half of it, son. I always start with the border and I just got one whole edge done and the rush was amazing. Too bad there's only the four sides cause I'd be edging all night if there were more but I guess the real payoff is gonna be placing that last middle piece anyways. Hopefully that mofo don't go missing on me between now and then or I'll have to call up a few of you carpet surfers and toss a sack to the carpet surfing X Games gold medallist who tracks that bitch down. Fuck I wish I didn't promise myself I'd be at work for 6 am tomorrow but at least I'll still have some puzz leftover to be able to get jiggy with it again afterwards 😎
Edit: made it to work for 730. Good enough for the girls I go for 😎
Composer here. Aware the answer might be a blindly obvious "no!!!!" - but want to ask just in case...
Ideally want to have a tremolo 5th in the LH and the RH bow a note... I feel like in performances and videos I've seen bowing pitched percussion involves both hands - but is it possible to do it with one?
Found a used Jiaxun marimba. 5.0 octave. Just wondering if anyone has played on one and if there are opinions on their quality.
It would be for my HS Sr...mostly at home practice.
Hi! I've been experimenting with percussion and electronics for some recording projects and was wondering if anyone could help me figure out some logistics for some social distance performing. I've recorded keys before and edited them after the fact, but was wondering if it's at all possible to record, say, marimba or vibraphone with a "live" effect coming out of speakers or just as it's happening. I'm not super knowledgeable in the microphone/speaker/hardware audio world...
Would it involve connecting microphones and speakers to a laptop that's running a DAW like Logic, Ableton etc? Would I be able to setup a pedal board and run a microphone through that? Is there some way to add pickups to a keys instrument? Any ideas would be great, thank you so much!
My son was fortunate to have a marimba from his HS at home during the pandemic. He would practice daily and loved it. Now it’s back at school.
I am looking to buy one for him to continue playing with the plans of likely selling it once he graduates HS.
Does anyone have one they want to sell? And do they hold their value well?
I’ve already played a few I’ve like (Rhythm Song by Smadbeck and Opening by Cangelosi) and I’d love to find more pieces that are written with that repetition-based minimalist style.
As said, I'm buying a 5 octave this summer. Per my own needs, I really don't need an overly expensive rose wood. I'm looking into MTech or a mode and wanted recommendations from anyone who has played on both. Personally, I've played on mode and really like it. However, MTech also has pretty great sound quality and tone. I worry sometimes the Mode Marimba might end up too tinny, even with the rosewood emulation.
