My new Malletech vibraphone by Philippe Macé
Hello everybody !
I just wanted to tell you about my new vibraphone and share my impressions with you guys, all vibes players of the world ! It's been a hard time for me to make a choice. In the past I used to have, in the order : one M55, then one M48, then I played mostly the Yamaha model YV-3710 along with my old Aurora Deagan that I sold a few month ago.
So I was very aware to make a good choice. I almost chose one of the Nico's vibraphone and I was waiting for the VanderPlas carbonVibe. Finaly I decided to try a new challenge and I purchased the new Malletech vibraphone also knowen as the glamour name of "Love Vibe" !
I play it for one month now and I am just starting to use correctly the pedal system with the vibrato. I still need more time to feel confortable but I can tell you already that this is a great system.
Beside this, the frame is awesome and very well made. The bars are good and the resonnators have to be in tune to make them sounding good. It is possible since each resonnator has a mobile hat (translation ??).
Well for now I am very happy, I hope it's going to last !
I'd like to put a pic but I dont' know how ?... Good bye and maybe talk to you soon.
