  • African Xylophone

    Great for the price. Very loud for it's size. Tone Very Warm. Records well enough anyway with a condensor mic. Great to add as an extra track for texture and percussion in general. Glad I bought mine.

  • too small,out of tune
    Verified Purchase

    If you want an example of an instrument from Ghana,ie a balafon, then this is fine. However, this is tourist junk that is not of playing quality. It should be pentatonic tuned and it is not. The small gourds at the underside do not add to the sustain of the note being played above. You get what you pay for in this case.

    I bought this as a gift for my son who enjoys original musical pieces. He very much enjoys it and it goes well with his "backwoods" drums and all. Delivery was timely too and packaged well. Thank you!
