  • Instrumentation +
    • Percussion Duo:

      Player 1
      Hi-hat (please see description below)
      Metal (please see description below)
      Crash cymbal

      Hi-hat with old broken cymbals or other things to produce a sound like hand claps/snare dr. Since you have to play the hihat and vibraphone using the pedal at the same time, the hi-hat is suggested to be placed in a convenient spot so you can operate it with your left foot heel whilst operating the vibraphone pedal with your right foot. This might help you to keep your body in balance.

      Metal: Metal rib-bone crash, tin can or any other metal sound to produce a crisp penetrating sound. The metalpiece should be placed close to the high ”d” on the vibraphone so you will be able to play with mallet 4 on the “d”(eights notes) and mallets 3 and 2 on the metal (sixteenth notes).

      Player 2
      Marimba (5-octave)
      Hi-hat (please see description below)
      Crash cymbal

      Hi-hat with ordinary cymbals with an open and ringing sound played with foot. A remote cable hi-hat is recommended and will give you more space to play the marimba.
