The Marimbula is the original caribbean bass. Eight metal tongues are fastened in such a manner that they can be individually tuned on a scale from D-G.
Marimbula are tuned on an F-major pentatonic scale, and can be played by hand or with mallets. Using mallets yields clear, fresh high notes.
Play with hands or mallets for deep, resonant bass tones.
Perfect for many different world music applications.
