Really important! Listen to our demos with headphones or good speakers!
Small speakers such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop can not possibly display the deep rich sound of the beautiful double bass, sousaphone or tuba. That is why it is so important to listen with headphones or good speakers!
Be careful: risk of rhythmic moving!
Turn your phone to landscape to hear the music in stereo!
The vibraphone is somewhat unknown, but at the same time one of the most characteristic jazz instruments. Made famous by artists such as Lionel Hampton and the famous Modern Jazz Quartet in the ' 50.
You are now able to book this unique instrument at the Jazz Central as an extension of the jazz bands.
Mild sound color, perfectly adjustable in volume
The vibraphone is characterized by a particularly mild, almost singing, sound color. The unique, beautifully vibrating sound is created by rotating plates in the sound tubes.
The volume is very adaptable to the situation at your party, so whether you're dining with a small group or organizing a big event with hundreds of guests: with the vibraphone as an extension we can perfectly adapt to the situation.
Unique appearance for your event or party
