Floating Bar Suspension | FBS

Most notable is the new Floating Bar Suspension System (FBS). This proprietary bar support system actually increases bar resonance by 20%! Precision laser cut bar support arms are angled to insure that each and every bar is supported exactly to the nodal point.

Resonator Clamp System

Vancore resonators are individually hand tuned and assembled using an exclusive mounting system. This system eliminates every kind of rattle or extraneous noise. Unlike other resonators, welded or riveted, our system employs minimal contact technology. This virtually eliminates potential problems.

Integrated Rail System

Our designers created a new and highly innovative concept to avoid the common and major problem with layers… On top of that, the bar suspension and layer are integrated. One solution, on unique concept!
When only the best is good enough!

Bars | African Padouk

Material: African Padouk | Pterocarpus soyauxii As a perfect alternative for Hundouran Rosewood Vancore is using African Padouk as basic material for bar manufacturing. This African hardwood stands for a warm character and rich sustain. Through sizes of logs and availability of quarter sawn wood, the bars made out of African Padouk are representing perfectly balanced marimba keyboard in performance and tonality.

  • Bar Sizes: | 65x27mm | 58×25 mm | 53×25 mm | 48x 25mm | 44x23mm | 40x21mm
End pieces

To realise the most stable and precise construction, rails and end piece are very carefully designed to make that perfect match. All end pieces are made out of first choice solid Ash wood, carefully shaped and CC machined. Inside the end piece a cut out chamber gives room for a solid special metal sheet for perfect and sturdy mounting of the rails. To achieve perfection in construction and quality we always keep an eye on the natural look of the mallet instruments. A little different but perfectly designed and engineered. Vancore stands for innovation!

Manual Height Adjustment

Height Adjustment of these models can be executed manually very easily


With just a ‘press on the pedal’ the height of the instrument can be easily adjusted. Comfort lifting resulting in a total free frame suspension, is realised by using durable gas springs to create an optimum of playing comfort.
