Vibraphonette vs. Vibraphonette - so close in Brooklyn

Here's Soy Un Caballo, a Belgian band that features the vibraphonette. The video is from when they played Union Hall in Brooklyn, NY - right across the street from my apartment! I should have walked across the street with mine to have a vibraphonette-off!

and thanks to David from Madrid for the tip!

A new owner in Madrid, Spain

I got an email from David from Madrid, Spain. He has known about the vibraphonette for a while, but recently got one from an Italian musician. This musician was apparently paid for a recording session with this particular vibraphonette. David says it needs a bit of repair - belts, screws... From what I can see, it looks like it can be restored to working order. It even has a great looking handle. David was kind enough to send along a few pictures for me to post. -- thanks, David!
