Yamaha Studio vibraphone - Silver satin finish alloy bars
Stock code: Yamaha YV2700
The vibraphone, or “vibes” as it is also known, is an instrument of the glockenspiel family, having a set of metal bars which produce notes when struck by a mallet. The distinctive feature of a vibraphone is that it has a spinning butterfly valve in the resonator under each bar, adding a distinctive vibrato effect to the timbre. A vibraphone also has a sustain pedal that operates in a similar way to that of a piano.
The Studio series is available with gold resonators and glossy, gold bars for a bright, projecting sound (YV2700G), and with silver resonators and matte finish silver bars for a mellower, focused sound (YV2700).
A height-adjustable frame with dual, parallel crossbars ensures stability during play and transport.
All large tuned percussion instruments such as xylophones, marimbas, vibes etc are delivered boxed and require assemble which is not included in the price.
