The Yamaha YM6100C Artist 5.0 Octave Rosewood Marimba was designed in conjunction with world-renowned marimba legend Keiko Abe. The YM-6100 is the culmination of over 40 years of instrument development with Ms. Abe and is the industry-leading flagship for all Yamaha marimbas.
The YM6100 features carefully aged hand-selected Honduras Rosewood bars with exclusive Yamaha tuning method that ensures true pitch and full sound. Forward facing tunable round resonators feature a cut-away design with 3-position tracking system that allows resonator height adjustment for pitch and tone control and provide additional strength while reducing overall instrument weight. These resonators are also nut/bolt and welded resonators with denser alloys and thicker walls maximize the tone and ensure rattle-free play.
The height adjustable frame with pneumatic struts allows one person to easily adjust the height to a comfortable playing position. Oversized 4" casters allow for easy transport over rough surfaces. Hinged resonators and rails, along with a two-piece crossbar, make tear down a simple task
