6 Mallet Man

This is a guy at the Frankfur Music Fair this year using 6 mallets, sorry did'nt get his name but intersting, someone may be able to identify him, backround noise is loud so cant hear him too good enjoy anyway.

It looks like a 3.5 octave vibraphone with an extra 1/2 octave of marimba bars at the low end. Or is that an optical illusion?

No illusion thats what it is marimba bars at the low end

Interesting concept that -- the sound mixes pretty well and you don't get as much overtone sound from the marimba bars.

His name is Karol Szymanowski, from Poland. I saw him playing there too and had a little chat with him.

Here's another video (+ interview in Polish):
