    Hi, i work mostly in classical music production, contemporay exactly, and lately i work with chromatic percussion instruments like vibes, marimba, glokenspiel etc.

    Greg Malcagni is the guru on recording marimba and almost anything else hittable. He used to be an RO member, but I haven't seen him post here for a number of years. The RO search engine will bring up some advice from the past - it doesn't date.
