    › Marimba Making Workshop with Dave Paxton: Nov 10/17

    Location: TBC - Open in Google Maps -

    There will be two models of Marimba available to make,:
    14 note box marimba

    This is achievable for one or two people over the two days
    Cost will be $300 (including all materials)

    31/2 octave pipe resonated marimba
    This is achievable as a family project, two to five + people
    Cost will be $700 (including all materials)

    I will be doing considerable preparatory work (i.e. all the boring bits!) so you can enjoy tuning and decorating. I will also be assisting on the making days.
    Varnishing will be done on completion by participants in their own time, however I can provide all the advice required for this step.
    As there is a lot of work involved in making a well tuned, completed instrument, I strongly encourage you to rope in anyone and everyone to help
    you with the build!

    All ages welcome.

    Venue will depend on the number of participants.
    Please be in touch with any enquiries or hitches and we can find a way to make it work!
    Both instruments are based around the Jon Madin designed diatonic xylophones.
    Registration closes 9th October
