Vibraphone

The vibraphone, sometimes called the vibraharp or simply the vibes, is a musical instrument in the mallet subfamily of the percussion family. It is similar in appearance to the xylophone, marimba, and glockenspiel, although the vibraphone uses aluminum bars instead of the wooden bars of the first two instruments. The most common uses of the vibraphone are within jazz music, where it often plays a featured role, and in the wind ensemble, as a standard component of the percussion section.

    The vibraphonist/percussionist that I saw play with Les Claypool this past summer was one of the most amazing musicians I have ever seen. I definately see the vibraphone in a new light of kick-assery!...Dude also happened to be a badass drummer too.
