Comments about Stagg 3 Octave Xylophone:

I purchased this item for my 10 year old son to learn mallet percussion on for 5th grade band. Compared to rental costs and other purchases, this instrument is a fair value although I bought it used from the website making it moreso. The bag was brand new and functional able to hold the keyboard & stand and can even be worn as a backpack style if desired for transport. The stand seems brand new and sufficient although it can't quite secure the narrower end of the keyboard itself. My biggest complaint is that the keys themselves are only secured on one end of the bars instead of both ends. As a result, when you strike the wooden key bars to play the instrument w/a mallet, the unsecured end literally pops up and will sometimes not fall back in place correctly. As a result, this would be problematic for live/concert performance. As a practice instrument for home, it's adequate for a beginning player.

      Comments about Stagg 3 Octave Xylophone:

      Although it is very small compared to ones that you would use in concerts, this xylophone has a great sound with the right mallets. The ones that come with it aren't something you really want to keep around but that goes for most training percussion.

      Comments about Stagg 3 Octave Xylophone:

      Very Excellent. First of all, it looks beautiful, It is a 37 keys with rose wood. It has a nice sound, no overtone. It is mostly good for small venues and practicing at home. Most students rent a poorly made bell kit. It is small, has an overtone, and terrible to practice with. This Xylophone is a great deal! However, when I bought it, I came with cheap/ hard-to-use mallets, and some of the pins were bent. BUt, The hardware that comes with it is good (The stand)

      Comments about Stagg 3 Octave Xylophone:

      We purchased this instrument for our daughter (5th grade) because it had wooden keys and more octaves than a bell kit. The sound is definitely more pleasing than a bell kit with metal keys. It is also more useful for home practice since it has 3 octaves. It isn't made particularly well, but is fine for the price and purpose. The stand does not hold the instrument at all on the smaller end, but it seems to work ok. It should have been packed more securely. It arrived with several pegs considerably bent and out of place such that the keys would not lay flat. I had to fix them with a hammer. It seems ok now. We purchased a used instrument, so this may not be a problem with a new instrument. It is portable for an adult, but would likely be difficult for a child to carry. It lays flat in the back of our minivan for transport. I would not suggest traveling with it upright without securing the keys somehow. I think this is how it became damaged during shipping.

      Comments about Stagg 3 Octave Xylophone:

      I think it is a beautiful instrument for the price. exceded my expectations only had to do some minor maintainance to make it playable. Beautiful tone. The stand is a little wonky, and there were no directions on assembly or playing or adjusting, come to think of it there were no instructions as in any paperwork. Love it though.

      Comments about Stagg 3 Octave Xylophone:

      I purchased this instrument for beginning percussion students. Out of the box, the sound was less than acceptable. But I installed thin nylon cord (figure 8) under the bars and thin aluminum sheeting to the bottom of the rails. After 3 hrs. of work I had an instrument that would be a very good practice xylophone for a student. If you are willing to put the work into it, it's worth it.

      A lot of xylophone for a little money

      • Small Venues
      • Symphonies

      Comments about Stagg 3 Octave Xylophone:

      This is probably the cheapest full-size xylophone. Surprisingly, it is perfectly adequate for our community symphony orchestra. The tone is somewhat less full, since it has no resonator tubes, and the keys are somewhat lighter than a better professional instrument, but with a good pair of mallets, the result is quite fine.

      For a community orchestra with limited resources, where options are renting every time score needs a xylophone, or buying the cheapest available model, this purchase solves the problem. Symphonic scores use it rather sparsely, so it makes no sense spending thousands for a good instrument that plays for a few bars...

      Our percussionists are quite pleased with it, especially considering the ultra-low price.

      For community orchestras of all sorts, this is a great choice.

        Comments about Stagg 3 Octave Xylophone:

        I opened the product and right off the bat something was wrong. It was simply nailed to the fame instead of having strings attached to it. There are no resonator bars and it produces a dead sound. Also, while testing out the product, I attempted to play No Flams. I played C, C#, D, D# and I had to stop there because the C# and D# were way too high pitched. The C# was much much higher than the D and D# was much higher than E. I had to send this product back, leaving me back to practicing my mallet technique on a piece of cardboard with duct tape notes. Do not buy this product. Save a little more money and upgrade to a quality xylophone or marimba. Remember, you do not need an actual keyboard to practice. There are many cheaper, homemade solutions to improve your skills just as well.
