The Quartertone Vibraphone

Early prototypes: The quartertone vibraphone

The quartertone vibraphone version 1.2 Developed spring 2002. Comprising a Yamaha 3 octaves c - c vibraphone as extension tuned a quartertone flat; and an Adams 3 octaves f - f as the main instrument. I took the bars to Arthur Soothill's instrument shop in London and he tuned the vibraphone down. He shared many great stories from a long life as an instrument maker.

Composers such as Ragnhild Berstad, David Bratlie and Erik Dæhlin have written pieces for this instrument.
