Leigh Howard Stevens Shows Us the New Omega and Love Vibraphones

While walking around PASIC this morning, we ran across the innovative (and beautiful!) Malletech Omega and Love Vibraphones. Leigh Howard Stevens was kind enough to give us an in depth look at the new series prototype.

The Love and Omega series vibes do not use the traditional “paddle” inside the resonator to produce vibrato. Instead, Malletech has implemented a “shutter” system that is more efficient and provides more control over the sound.

Watch our interview with Leigh for the full scoop.
