This marimba, serial number 108, was the most ambitious project of Planet Marimba in the summer of 2003. It was to be the largest chromatic bass marimba in existence. The lowest bar (A0) sounds the lowest note on the piano, thus allowing the owner, Rich Lockstein, the ability to transcribe almost anything for his marimba ensemble. Although this instrument is over 5-feet wide, it fits through doorways by separating the frame in two parts. The naturals and accidentals are separate frames. The mitered resonators detach from the frame individually for easier transport.
