“The whole idea was to build my own musical instrument. It was only after some years that I realized that the potential was there for me to develop the hobby that I loved into a business.” ~ Ron Samuels, Founder, Marimba One
Marimba One is known for building the world’s finest marimbas. Ron Samuels founded his company in the 1980s as a hobby, but as he perfected his craft, demand for his instruments grew. Over the years Samuels has developed an international reputation for creating the finest marimbas in the world.
