MTech was created to make the unmatched sound and construction that Malletech is known for, accessible to students, schools and aspiring professional musicians, without breaking the bank. Malletech's first-quality African Padauk bars rival other companies’ rosewood instruments in warmth, clarity, volume and ring time. The graduated keyboards (tuned 48 hours before leaving the Malletech facility) and tunable low resonators of the 5.0 marimba produce rich bass tones and full-bodied sound across the instrument. A superior frame with beautifully solid wooden endboards, nuts-and-bolts resonator assembly, and smooth & solid height adjustment system ensure many years of wonderful music-making. Once you play an MTech by Malletech, you’ll want to be a proud owner of one!
