The bar set on this instrument is chosen specifically to NOT be put over tubes.  The bars in this format will give the player a sense of ring-time and connection so musical playing can still come through.  Because it does not have tubes, the dynamic range is much lower than that of an instrument with tubes.  It does, however, highlight ALL of the things we try to do as players such as balance between hands, balance of chords, direction of musical line, control of striking area, and rate of speed of the mallet off of the bar.  As with all DeMorrow marimbas, the evenness from bar to bar is paramount.
