Xylophones have been an important product for Korogi since the company began building desk xylophones for Japanese schools in 1949. Since then, Korogi craftsmen have continually developed quality instruments for the youngest of beginners, as well as some of the world’s finest professional instruments. 

The same stringent grading and selection methods are used for selecting xylophone bars as with the finest Korogi marimbas.  Honduras Rosewood, Padouk, and Karinwood bars are matched not only for quality of wood color, grain and density, but also tone quality, sustain, and projection across the entire range of the keyboard.  

Experience the quality, craftsmanship, and beauty of Korogi xylophones, and perhaps your best performance ever.

What is the difference between a "Marimba" and a "Xylophone"?
Irene M on Feb 26, 2014
Best Answer: Xylophones sound an octave higher than a marimba. They are not the same! They are both mallet instruments but since the xylophone is 8 notes higher it has a more brittle sound, marimba are more mellow because they are lower. Since they are lower the bars are larger and therefore more expensive. The xylophone also because of its brighter sound can cut through a large ensemble. The mellower sound of the marimba can be covered up by a large group. Both beautiful instruments, but decidedly different.
