So nice for the price. I love the sound, easily adjustable. delivered on time. Thanks from a sleepy little town nestled along the rivers edge in Lowell Wi.

I really adore the craftsmanship on this. The strings on it do loosen to allow more to me to the notes. Which I failed to do for video sry. But well worth the price for music lovers and collectors of unique instruments.
Very pretty was my 1st thought. Originally purchased because my 11yr son is a beginner percussionist & he’s been learning marimbas so I thought this would be good for him to just practice. With the price being so low, I bought 2 so he could teach others to play. Once received, these are so small, they can’t be an instrument but more a decorative item. Does produce different sound per key & can be played as such, xylophone or marimba, etc. Could be a great teaching tool, kids toy, practice piece for beginners, or simply a nice decor piece for music lovers or your fav music / band teacher. But do be aware of what you’re buying here. My pic has a ruler to show you the size of the sticks as well as the item. Yes, I’d buy it again. Beautifully designed & crafted. Price is really good for the item. I could see these going for double as a novelty in a music shop.

I have two boys that have everything in the world. So I bought them each one of these as a coffee table conversation piece. They both love them and thought it was the coolest thing. I will definitely search for similar items at the similar price which was definitely a good deal to see them smile. Getting some thing out of the ordinary always does

This is a very beautiful percussion INSTRUMENT. It is truly an instrument. Maybe the word ‘xylophone’ is misleading to some. It is a percussion instrument not a xylophone. If you are looking for a typical rainbow steel ‘xylophone’ then this isn’t the piece for you. If you are seeking a unique percussion instrument to enhance or begin your appreciation for international percussion differences, this is an excellent choice. Makes a perfect gift for a percussion professional, teacher, or enthusiast. Makes a great student/child teaching piece (world cultural instruments, not twinkle twinkle little star), but it is most certainly NOT A TOY. This is something to put somewhere special, use for percussion, and a great conversation piece. The science alone of how the different tones are formed from different sizes and elevation of the wood adds to conversation, learning, and percussion appreciation. The color is beautifully dark and it came wrapped very carefully.

This item came in after going through what I would assume to be package hell. The “box” was delivered to me covered in a plastic bag with a label that said it was received damaged by the post office. I really feared the worst. i opened up the box and though there was plenty of mold on it, the product barely had a scratch! The striking hammers were even fully intact! After a good cleaning with diluted bleach water, I have it resting on my windowsill to dry out after being most for so long. The design are beautiful and this thing is made of some strong and thick wood! The tuning is a bit out, but I am pretty sure it just need to dry a bit. This will be a great centerpiece and I look forward to playing on it for a long while. For 20 dollars, this is an amazing purchase!

If you are looking for an instrument of quality and you will only spend this amount and want to complain that a 20 dollar piece is not capable of using in a venue,….you need to evaluate how you think…or quit trying to pay the least amount for the highest quality.This is meant for decorating and should not be used for performance as some of the reviewers are trying to do…you need to pay thousands for a real instrument…….have to pay to play….this is a great art piece at a good price.

This is a really nicely made item for the price. I’d purchased one as a present, and decided to get one for myself. It is ornamental, but has a nice sound and looks sturdy enough for playing.
This is way too beautiful and unique for the price.Its functionality is a bonus if you have reasonable expectations for the size and media of the thing. The reviews suggest that people are expecting melodic tones. Its perfectly functional for percussive tones but the beauty of it far outweighs its musical value. Make this purchase for the handcrafted beauty. If you’re going for the musical value alone, well, pots and pans are still more expensive, so just dont expect long melodic tones; think percussion. All in all, its an absolute steal. Triple the price on it and its still well worth it imo.

Technically it is an instrument. Is it necessarily a good one? No.If you strike the wood, you will hear tones change, just like a regular xylophone. However the tones are not bright or even distinct, really.I bought it for decoration, not for use. For that reason, I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
