Great-sounding, affordable marimba.
With a retail price of about $2,500 less than the Malletech Imperial Grand or Roadster, you might be able to find a Honduran rosewood 5-octave marimba for a few hundred dollars less, but why would you? All this Malletech marimba technology for the same price as other brands.
While the low Stiletto bars are narrower than the Imperial Grand, they are still wide and powerful. However, because of the closer spacing, any cross stick grip player can get a comfortable octave starting on the lowest ‘C'.
The Stiletto resonators are the lightest in the world. You can lift the low section with one hand. Engineered to be set up by one person. Also, because the Stiletto bars are longer, they are less susceptible to cracking when overplayed. And if you ever do lose control, Malletech's replacement bars are affordable. Go crazy. Be sensible. Get a Stiletto.
- Enchanting sound

Five octaves of superior craftsmanship.
