Up for auction is a Saito Vibraphone, made in Japan. It has a working eight speed motor with rotating paddles. The Motor operates as it should. The Control Panel operates as it should, including the on light. The Manufacturer's Plate is shown in Picture #6, however I don't know what the numbers mean because the descriptions are written in Japanese. Picture #7 shows the underside of the pipes and keys.
I purchased this for my daughter from her music teacher years ago, when she was in the Pit in High School and in Drum Corps. She never took it on the road with her. It has always remained in our house.
I strongly encourage anyone to come and see/play the instrument before placing a bid. You may reach me at 609.758.3640 to make arrangements. Please do not call to ask if I will sell the instrument outside of eBay; I will only sell this through eBay.
I have also placed two videos on YouTube of the notes being played. You may access these at the following links:
I am offering this auction with two delivery options. One is LOCAL PICKUP, (which is what I would prefer). Alternately, I will personally deliver the instrument to you for 80 cents per mile, up to 250 one-way miles from area code 08533 (New Egypt, NJ). Please let me know at auction's end what your preference for delivery is so that I can send you the appropriate invoice.
I only accept PayPal for payment. I will not be accepting returns on this instrument, so please read the description, watch the YouTube videos, call me to ask questions, and/ or come see/play the instument before placing a bid. And, as always, please feel free to ask any questions through eBay messaging.
If you purchase the Vibraphone using the "Buy it Now" price, I will include the eleven (11) sets of mallets, and eight (8) loose mallets and drumsticks (see picture #10) with the Vibraphone. For the "Buy it Now" price I will also include the Mallet Bag (see pictures #11 and 12).
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE: The Mallets and Mallet Bag (Pictures #10, 11 and 12) ARE NOT INCLUDED if the bidding is via the Auction Price.
Thanks for looking!
