Comments about Yamaha YM-1430C 4.3 Octave Standard Padauk Marimba with Cover:

I bought the 4.3 octave Yamaha almost a year ago and I have never regretted it. It has a beautiful sound and is a great marimba for anyone who is looking for something a bit less expensive, but still high quality. Like all marimbas, it is fairly difficult to transport from one place to another and takes me about a half hour on each end to move it, but it is less bulky than most 4.3 octaves and definitely easier than a 5 octave to move. When it is taken apart, it doesn't take up much space and I can fit it in the back of my PT Cruiser with a lot of room to spare. In my opinion, Paduak is a bit less resonant than rosewood, but still makes a beautiful and very resonant sound.
