You will note on perusing the following pages that we list Marimbas of various styles and kinds under various names. Instruments that are played with bows as well as mallets are called Marimbaphones, and instruments that are played with mallets only are called Marimbas.

Deagan Steel Marimbaphones are made of special alloy steel bars mounted on frames and each bar is equipped with a special Designed Deagan Patent resonator, the whole being mounted on a substantial steel tube floor rack and can be played with bows or mallets.

The changing of the instrument from bowing to mallet playing position or vice versa, is instantaneous and is accomplished by turning bolts conveniently located at end of instrument.

A Deagan Steel Marimbaphone is a most valuable addition to any orchestra in which it will replace the Italian Harp, having all the desirable tone qualities of the Harp with the additional advantage of always being in tune.

Deagan Steel Marimbaphone blends perfectly with the voice and has a tendency to build it up and many of the more prominent singers carry a Deagan Steel Marimbaphone with them for accompaniment purposes.

Deagan Steel Marimbaphones can be played by from one to four people, according to size and range and as two separate sets of selections can be played on an instrument, one with bows and one with mallets, the instrument is practically two instruments in one.

Deagan Steel Marimbaphones are also very adaptable for home use, as the instrument is very simple to play and the tone is of absolutely the very finest quality, being similar to that of Musical Glasses, it makes and ideal instrument for a Music Room.

Deagan Nagaed Marimbaphones consist of famous Deagan Nagaed Wood bars mounted on frames, each bar being equipped with a specially designed Deagan patent resonator. The Nagaed wood from which these instruments are made is of the very finest selection and no wood is used which has not been seasoned and treated for at least 5 years.

Deagan Nagaed Marimbaphones can be played with both bows and mallets same as the Deagan Steel Marimbaphones.

Deagan Nagaed Marimbaphones have a tone that is a revelation in music, being very deep and mellow and must be heard to be appreciated. In the lower register the tones have a tone that is similar to that of the very finest Tympany, and when the instrument is played with three or more mallets the tone resembles that of a Grand Pipe Organ.

We manufacture these instruments in two sizes of bars; the smaller instruments are designed for ordinary use, such as in small Theaters, Homes, Churches, etc., while the larger instruments have a tone of sufficient volume to fill the very largest auditorium.
