In the language of the Shona people of Zimbabwe, Afrika, the word "marimba" means "wooden voices."

Fredtronics Marimbas are carefully handcrafted from selected padauk, a tropical hardwood, to liberate the true voice of the wood. Each instrument is custom designed to your specifications. Built for musicians who are looking for an authentic Afrikan sound, these instruments are used in a number of working ensembles, including Boka Marimba.

The marimbas shown on this site are just examples of what is available. You may specify any custom features, expanded key sets, types of wood for keys or frame, height, and design.

Fred King, owner and operator of Fredtronics Custom Marimbas, is a retired veteran of Boka Marimba, a band that has performed Kwanongoma-style music in Portland, Oregon since 1987.
