MJB Marimba

Michael J. Burritt, Professor of Percussion at the world renowned Eastman School of Music, came to Malletech in 2010 to lay down a challenge. He wanted low-octave reaches as easy as our Stiletto2 Marimba, but with a sound as big as our full-sized instruments. He wanted more highs on the highs and more lows on the lows. He wanted a completely new look. What he really wanted was a Malletech of the future, but he wanted it NOW.

  • Patented Super Smooth Technology (“SST”).
  • Patented metal-topped resonator tuners.
  • Massive, tunable 4-inch diameter, slow-bent, low resonators.
  • New, deep-bass bar geometry.
  • Extremely rigid, twin-screw, belt-driven height adjustment.
  • Harley look, Stradivarius sound. The Malletech of the future, here today.

The MJB Marimba comes with a mahogany-finished oak frame with aluminum hardware and aluminum resonators. The standard MJB Marimba has tunable resonators in the first two octaves; standard resonators for the rest of the instrument. Full-range tunable resonators are also available; contact your preferred retailer for pricing and availability.
