Wish List from Amy Savage (Lead Percussion Instructor and Arranger):

  • Yamaha Xylophone – used one for sale from Colts. I called Colts to get a price and the owner is on vacation, but they ball parked it at around $2,450 (new ones are ~$6k). Ours is in disrepair and really needs to be replaced.
  • Yamaha Concert Bells x 2 – again the owner is on vacation and they don’t list the price on the Colts website (new these range in price from $600 to $1,000). We currently have 2 and they’re in salvage condition.
  • Yamaha Gold Vibe from Boston Crusaders at $4,350 (this would replace our broken Musser vibe)
  • Yamaha 4.5 Octave marimba from Boston Crusaders at $6,400 (we have 2, Amy says we really need 3)
