  • E-Vibes?

    Does anyone know if there was ever any kind of electronic vibraphone? I just thought it would be seriously cool and a lot of fun.

        Interesting, but really expensive for something that looks so cheap.

        Has anyone used one and got some thoughts on it?

        There should be a cheaper alternative around somewhere.

          There's also the Marimba Lumina, also available through Alternatemode, or you can scour the ads for a Simmons Silicon Mallet, if you're lucky enough to find one...

            Thanks guys. There are some interesting products out there. I was only asking 'cos I was in a kind of wouldn't it be nice if.. sort of mood. I can't play mallet instruments (at least I've never tried) just thought it might be interesting in an experimental sort of way.

            Why is it that whenever someone says they make experimental music it usually means that only they like it?

            Actually I think Harlock's suggestions were quite reasonable, considering.

              This would be my e-mallet interface of choice. Real African wood, three octaves, and it can be whatever you want. At $4K, it's hardly a bargain, but hey, you could practice in headphones.

                My teacher has got a perfectly 'normal' vibraphone with some kind of midi device. i'm not sure how it works actually, i'll ask next saturday. i know he uses it for convenience while recording and sometimes for using silly effect while doing clinics.
                - "Can i kick it?"
                - "Yes, you can ..."

                  I remember that... Wasn't that a pic. of Rob playing the new TD6 kit???

                  Hey when you look at that thing, it looks pretty cool for a kids set... it even has a hat pedal. I wonder how bad the x-talk is...
                  Man... it even has in-ear monitors with a built in mic... Hmmm.....

                    It even comes with a (sorta) curved rack, a throne, and some baby "ahead-like" sticks with large black olives on the ends.

                    And do those colored lenses flash when you do badass fills? If so...
