The Vancore Performing Standard PSM-1001 4.3 Oct Padouk Marimba was designed for the budget minded students, orchestras and ensembles. The height adjustment the PSM-1001 can be executed manual very easily, through a double tube support height adjustment.
As a perfect alternative for Honduran Rosewood Vancore is using African Padouk as basic material for bar manufacturing. This African hardwood stands for a warm character and rich sustain. Through sizes of logs and availability of quarter sawn wood, the bars made out of African Padouk are representing a perfectly balanced marimba keyboard in performance and tonality.
These unique marimbas are featured with our newly designed ICS system (Integrated Cord Suspension). The innovative frame has special designed steel layers and end pieces. Precision laser cut bar support arms are angled to insure that each and every bar is supported exactly to the nodal point.
Resonator Clamp System- Vancore resonators are individually hand tuned and assembled using an exclusive mounting system. This system eliminates every kind of rattle or extraneous noise. Unlike other resonators, welded or riveted, our system employs minimal contact technology. This virtually eliminates potential problem
End Pieces- To realize the most stable and precise construction, rails and end piece are very carefully designed to make that perfect match. All end pieces are made out of first choice solid Ash wood, carefully shaped and CC machined. Inside the end piece a cut out chamber gives room for a solid special metal sheet for perfect and sturdy mounting of the rails.
