This is the best purchase I ever made. Ross knows how to design a great sounding vibraphone. In many ways, this instrument is actually superior to higher end models like Musser. First, it has one of the sturdiest frames you will ever find on a mallet keyboard instrument. The fact the instrument is height adjustable is also good since this will prevent back problems down the road. Being too tall for most vibraphones, it is nice too be able to stand at my normal height without having to break my back to play the instrument. Second, the pedal has incredible action, and, like the frame, is very sturdy. Third, the instrument has great tone. The upper and lower ranges of the instrument actually sound superior to a Musser; I think a Musser has slightly better sounding middle range, but the Ross comes so close it is very difficult to hear the difference. Fourth, the bars are exceptionally friendly to rebound and dampening. Finally, the instrument sounds almost exactly as good as models that are twice its price! I strongly recommend this instrument, it will be the best purchase you ever make.
Unless you are planning on putting down $10,000+ for a Vanderplas or custom made Vibraphone, this is the best vibe you will find on the market. Everything about the instrument is superb, and, in my opinion, is a far better vibraphone than anything Musser, Adams, or Yamaha makes. The Ross is perfectly in tune with itself. When you hit the lower and upper bars, there are no nasty overtones, just perfect, pure, brilliant intonation with a rich sound. The frame is excellent, maybe the sturdiest on the market. The volume, intonation, pitch, and timbre is consistent throughout the entire instrument. This is THE vibraphone to buy.
