Comments about Yamaha YM-1430C 4.3 Octave Standard Padauk Marimba with Cover:

We bought this wonderful instrument after quite a bit of research. We found a couple of other used instruments of the same make and model and found that they hold their value very well. So well, that we just decided to buy this new, instead of used. Anyway, our son, absolutely loves this Marimba, says it is as good or better than the one's he plays at school. Very happy with the purchase.
