Mallet Bar Repairs and Replacements
Rosewood, Padauk, and Synthetic Marimba and Xylophone Bars
Over time a lot of bars will either develop cracks in them, start shredding on the sides, or go severely out of tune. These bars can either be repaired or replaced depending on the damage to the bar. All rosewood and padauk bars need to be tuned about once every 2-3 years, especially here in Utah where it is dry. Vibraphone bars can also be repaired in some cases.
Her are a some photos of bars I have worked on.
