Perhaps, but Xylophone is just so classic!

Sweet! I would have never thought of this. The xylophone is nicely cunstucted. The mallets are a good choice as well. Great fig choice, as usuall!

I anticipated this objection and thought the same initially, but apparently it was used in Ancient Greece and was known in the middle ages.

See this wikipedia article. :wink:

Excellent vig, once again. Really clever idea for a xylophonist, and the use of the grate-thingy pieces for the instrument was pure genius.

Very nice Xylophonist (though I still dislike that head a lot). The only problem is that the instrument seems a bit tall... I thought the player was sitting at first.

Great job, though.

Very nice, Steve. I like your use of grated tiles as keys.
