Angelical fretless zither for Kontakt

The Marxophone was produced by the Marxochime Colony of New Troy, Michigan. Billed as easy to play and sold on time-purchase plans by door-to-door salesman.

The sound of the Marxophone is reminiscent of the various types of hammered dulcimer in music traditions world-wide. It has four sets of chord strings to be strummed with the left hand and two octaves of double melody strings, which are struck by metal hammers activated by the right hand.

Why you'll love Marxophone

Marxophones are rare instruments with a very characteristic charming sound.

Chords

Apart from the obvious melody strings, the Marxophone library also includes a complete set of major and minor chords that can be played with the left hand.

Melodies

The right hand can play melodies using the different articulations that Marxophone offers: springs, pick and fingers. Play in any combination!

Sound

Being a fretless dulcimer, with strings attached on a hollow wooden body that resonates, the sound that comes out of it is very magical.
