What Is A Vibraphone?

The origins of the vibraphone can be traced to the early African balafon,from which the xylophone evolved. The original balafons were made with hardwood bars (mahogany or rosewood) and used hollow calabash gourds as resonators.


The xylophone is carved hardwood with metal resonators and
the marimba is a larger deeper pitched instrument.

At the age of 19, I finally saved enough money to buy this instrument.
