Re: Sounds of Music C

Is rosewood required for a quality marimba, or can other woods be substituted with equal sound quality? I didn't want to spend a fortune buying rosewood so I used Maple and I think the sound quality is good. The only thing I didn't like about it though was that the grain of the wood was pretty vari...

Is putting a hinge in the middle of a marimba in order to make it fit through a door an "alteration" (rule 3d)?

Re: Most competitive state

I see you guys have forgotten Michigan? This goes back to my original point - everyone, I think, can claim that every state is competitive. All I know about Michigan is that Grand Haven goes pretty much every year. Is it competitive in the regional and state competitions? All I know is it has the s...

Re: Sounds of Music C

Thanks for the advice! My partner and I are still trying to figure out what we will build but I think it would definitely be unique!
