This Marimba that is pictured is accurately tuned at sea level to A440, the lowest note is middle C.
The frame is bamboo with pine feet. The keys are made from some unknown monkeywood I found, and have a nice earthy sound. The keys are reclaimed wood, so no monkeys were made homeless in the building of this marimba. The bamboo is from a California plantation, so no pandas were made hungry, even thought they look like they could stand to miss a meal.
I thought it would be cool to make one of these out of reclaimed wood and bamboo, however it became a LOT of work, and I am unlikely to make a custom listing of these once this one sells, so it is OOAK.
This bamboo is well seasoned, but if you live in Yuma and leave it in the sun all day it may split. That won't really hurt anything playability wise, I am just warning you. Bamboo can split.
The overall measurements are:
Length of lowest key 13"
Weight: 6 lbs

This recording was made with an inexpensive computer mic, and I am not much of a player, but you get an idea of the sound.
I will ship this Internationally, but it is pricey due to the size and weight. US shipping is priced on regular Parcel Post. If you want a different service ask.
