Suitcase-Frame

With the suitcase frame, the entire vibraphone (base stand, frame and resonance tubes), with the exception of the keyboard bars, can be packed into a hard-shell case. The total weight (without keyboard, including suitcase) is approx. 22 kg to 28 kg, depending on the version.

The suitcase frame can be relieved either with wooden or aluminum profiles for the keyboard frames.

The resonant tubes can be made from plstic or aluminum. Furthermore, both variants can be relieved as a "tube-in-tube" transport, as a rigid "panflute" or as folding "panflute".
Also optionally, individually placed aluminum-rubber posts or the replaceable post can be used
