Bateau Bay - The Musical Shed

The men in the Shed did such an excellent job making the full sized marimbas last year that we were this time asked to make 4 Mini Marimbas. These can be transported between schools so that students not fortunate enough to have access to the full sized instruments can at least gain from the learning on the smaller versions.

With the experience gained on the larger varieties Tom and his team really raced through this project to the delight of the school and teacher.

While not shown Tom designed a carry rack so the instruments can be stacked and carried from school to school and class to class as a single unit and each instrument has a locking mechanism to prevent the bars falling off when being set up by students.
