Horizontal Electronic Marimba
The Solar Powered Marimbas have been designed to be easy to play and with a strong architecturally pleasing design. They feature high quality sound reproduction, 2 octaves in a pentatonic major scale and user selectable instrument sounds. The instruments have touch sensitive chime bars which can be played by users of mixed ability and as there are no mallets or beaters required to play the instruments. Stainless steel and HDPE construction make them very durable and weather resistant.
The solar panel is mounted high up out of the way of children, but is an impact resistant epoxy solar unit so you do not have to worry about damage. It is mounted in an attractive, colored polycarbonate and HDPE housing that is also adjustable so the solar panel can face South. Standard Color; White HDPE and Stainless Steel construction with a choice of Polycarbonate colored accents. Solar Power Information – Please note that due to the unpredictability of the weather we cannot guarantee that power will always be available to run the Solar Marimba. However, the unit features a large capacity reserve battery that will power the unit for a number of days without sunshine, the solar and battery protection PCB constantly monitors the power level of the internal battery pack and if the unit reaches a level which is too low to run the electronics the unit will shut down and allow for a charge period to top the battery pack back up to an acceptable level. During this period a low battery “beep, beep, beep” will play through the speaker so you know this is happening.
