Deagan Traveller Vibraphone 3 octave F-F
This item is in our Chicagoland store. Local pickup only. This is a really nice example of the Deagan Traveller vibraphone. This vibe was designed to be portable (as portable as a set of vibes can get anyhow!). The vibe is a full size meaning it is 3 octaves F-F, rather than the 2.5 octaves seen on smaller versions. The bars are 1.5"x.5" which is again designed to keep the instrument lighter in weight by using the non-graduated bars. More upscale models have graduated bars where the lower end gets to be 2.5"x.5", but those get HEAVY. The sound of this vibe is very nice. Deagan always made extremely nice bars, so their non-graduated bars sound much better than those of other brands. This vibe is in nice shape. Motor cord should be replaced and motor probably needs some work. I have not used the motor at all. If you want to use the motor Gilberto Serna at Century Mallet in Chicago can do the work easily. He has often told me that the motors on these older vibes are great because they are so easy to repair. We have used this vibe in our jam sessions and in our recording studio and it has been great without the motor. Really nice instrument. $1000.
The 4 wood blocks that you see with the attached plastic wheel stoppers were made by us. Reason: my son Steve Jr played this more than I did and he is very tall, so these allow you to raise the instrument up a bit. Just tuck one up under each wheel. These will be included.
