The circular marimba is
a circular percussion instrument that has pie shaped wedges of varying sizes
. The pie shaped wedges are areas sectioned off by using brigdes so
when you hit the drum along the circumference o
of each wedge
you should notice that that pitches are different because the openings to each wedge is different. Also, when you hit an individual wedge from outside to inside or vice versa you should also hear different pitches. Please reference the Multi-chambered wood-block video. This particula
or circular marimba
has a 22
diameter and is made from Sapele Mahogany plywood and will mount on most cymbal stands.
