The Marimbula is the original Caribbean Bass. The eight metal tongues are fastened in such a manner that they can be individually tuned to a scale from D – g. The instruments are tuned to an F-major pentatonic scale. It can be played by hand or with mallets. Using mallets yields clear, fresh high tones. The body of the Marimbula is crafted from Alder and the top and bottom plates are Beech with an Ash veneer.
