The Concert Grand Soloist is highly regarded for its classic design and masterful, rich tone in the note range of C2-C7. A choice among professional recitalists for its presentation and tone, the 5-octave marimba features beautiful rosewood bars with rounded accidentals. The select wide-graduated rosewood bars provide a rich, full tone. Light staining, hand rubbing and a clear finish on the bars accentuate the beauty of the rosewood.
Musser’s most technically advanced marimba creation, the M500 Concert Grand Soloist features tunable aluminum alloy resonators secured by bolts and lock-nuts. Fine tuning a marimba allows the player to customize sound within the limitations of acoustics, temperature and humidity. With the Musser patented resonator caps, tuning in the range of C2 to C3 is quick and accurate, even in the lowest register. Resonators feature two position settings for placement.
