Practice Marimbas Coming to Houston Texas

Historically, practice marimba options have been limited for percussionists in Houston and the surrounding areas such as Katy, Cypress, The Woodlands, Sugarland, Pearland, or Friendswood. You would generally need to rent from Music and Arts or a local music shop.

Fortunately, Texas Marimbas, the leading practice marimba rental service in Dallas/Fort Worth is expanding to the Houston area in 2024. This will give Houston area percussionists access to 3-octave practice marimbas for only $35/mo and 4.3-octaves for $69/mo with free delivery, setup, and maintenance. You’ll see they have great google reviews so we expect it to be a big hit in Houston.

Rumor has it, the 3-octave marimbas offered for rental will be primarily Demorrow M1 or Adams AMPD30. These offer graduated bars that are the same widths and distances as the higher end of the 4.3-octave marimbas. This allows the students to use the 3-octave right up to the point they are starting 4-mallet exercises.

Once the student outgrows the 3-octave, Texas Marimbas can upgrade the user to the 4.3-octave marimba with free delivery and pickup of their original 3-octave. This will allow the percussionist to practice 4-mallet exercises at home vs shared time on the school marimbas.

The combination of the low monthly price and incredibly convenient service at Texas Marimbas will help ensure many of the percussionists in Houston are able to obtain a practice marimba.
