M500

Concert Grand Soloist

Musser’s most technically advanced marimba creation; the M500 Concert Grand Soloist is the choice among professional recitalists for its presentation and tone. This 5-octave marimba features select hand-tuned Honduras Rosewood bars, which provide a full and rich tone. The tunable aluminum resonators allow the player to customize their 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. Masterfully designed for the concert performer, the entire instrument disassembles for transport. The frame is height adjustable from 33.5" to 38", with durable locking casters for smooth transport and durability. Folding resonators and rails and detachable end pieces pack securely.
