I know nothing about manufacturers, so could someone confirm if this is any good?
I'm toying with buying one in the next couple of months and am thinking that 3 octaves is too restrictive so 4 it must be!
Are there any shops in London or in the South East where I could go and try some Xylophones/Marimbas out?
Also, I think I may be able to get a teacher, but a bit of a drive away. I've had a few suggestions so far but on the off-chance anyone knows a percussion teacher near Dartford that I could contact, I'd be indebted I'd like to do a couple of "trial" lessons to make sure that I actually like it as much as I think I will
