While I know the marimba uses rosewood or padauk bars and the vibraphone uses metal bars, my questions is more about what, or rather where would you use either instrument? The reason I ask is that I'd like to learn a mallet instrument and start using it in swing / jazz style music. I just want to make sure I buy the right instrument. There are plenty of 3.0 octave marimbas out there, but is that the right instrument for me, given what my goal is?
