Yamaha YV-520 - a true vibraphone?
Hello everyone again!
I hope you don't mind me filling in this section with some more questions on the vibes makers?
What do you think about the Yamaha's lower end vibraphone, the small and cute YV-520 model? Would you consider it as a true vibraphone or rather a toy? It has 32 mm wide bars and I've heard it's not so much comfortable to play on the bars so narrow especially when applying a four mallet techinques.
Is this model more like the vibes for children?
I know Yamaha makes quality products but is it wise to get a quality product with so limited functionality that it almost defeats the purpose of playing the instrument? Am I wrong in saying this?
