Xylosynth XS6 Bubinga
Built with solid laminated bubinga and available in 2, 3 and folding 4 & 5 octave sizes.
If you are looking for an alternative to your traditional marimba, vibraphone or xylophone with the added possibility of accessing the myriad sounds available to create new pieces and have fun then the Xylosynth is for you. This BEAUTIFUL percussion instrument will make you proud to play it anywhere which is why the BBC Philharmonic and Berlin Philharmonic are amongst our prestigious owners.
The tactile feel when striking the hard key surface combined with the dampening support system underneath to absorb the energy gives a controlled and minimal bounce, even with the hardest of mallet strikes. This bounce response is the same as playing a traditional Marimba or Vibraphone.
The impact sensitive piezo sensors under each bar combined with our very sophisticated filtering technology ensures a clean rapid response. The piezos are protected by the wood bars so there is no pressure on the sensor and we can guarantee our instruments, INCLUDING bars if using soft, light mallets, for 2 years parts and labour. This shows the confidence we have in the build quality and robustness of our instruments.
You can use the Xylosynth as an electronic marimba or electronic vibraphone but it is still a player’s instrument not a programmers. The Xylosynth is a plug in and play instrument especially if you buy our internal sounds. Those players that want more complicated set ups can program their sound module or laptop but still change set ups from the Xylosynth using the up/down buttons or pedals.
The Xylosynth is used around the world in musicals by companies such as Stage Entertainment, Disneyland Paris and DreamWorks, by top marching bands such as Carolina Crown, Blue Devils and The Cadets and on international tours with Cirque Du Soleil and Bjork, so as an owner you will be in good company!
Each instrument is custom built to specification from the many options available and we take pride in our work to ensure you receive a world class instrument and service.
