Bass Marimba, Contrabass
(Marimbaphone, Marimbaphon, Marimbafono, Piano Africano)
Mfg. by Brock
The Emil Richards collection bass marimbas were bought at different times; the contrabass marimba (range of G1-G3) in the 1960s, and the bass marimba (range of C2-F3) in the 1980s (from the late percussionist Chet Ricord).
These bass marimbas were used on soundtracks by Jerry Goldsmith, Michael Kamen, Elmer Bernstein, John Williams, and Michael Giacchino.
