Musser is the first name in vibes. Others preceded them, and others have joined the market since their inception in 1948, but when you think of vibes, you think of Musser. Celebrity users of Musser vibraphones are a who's who of the instrument: Lionel Hampton, Milt Jackson, Gary Burton, and many more. In addition to vibraphones, Musser also manufactures xylophones, marimbas, lyras, chimes and bells, as well as a wide selection of stands, cases and mallets. Pitched percussion combines two separate musical disciplines into one, and creating instruments that satisfy a musician who is both a pianist and a percussionist requires the kind of specialized focus that has defined Musser for more than sixty years.
