The Vizzion Narada is a 3 octaves vibraphone offering all features needed in a modern instrument. 

From the vibrato with both speed and depth control, to the fast midi, to the new electric dampening system
The new slimline keybed with its compact dimensions is both a joy to bring to your gigs, and to use it on any stage.
The angled, height adjustable legs, make this instrument rock-solid. The electric dampening allows for precise dampening, 
and eliminates all brutal forces normally applied to the instruments' frame.This makes the Vizzion Narada the most stable vibraphone ever made.

For the first time in a vibraphone, there is an electrical dampening system. No longer is the construction suffering from torsion caused by the dampening system. The pedal operates a servo motor driven dampening bar that does not have a physical connection with the pedal anymore. 

Software checks the use of the pedal, and makes the dampener bar follow the exact moves. For the first time ever, you can really set the parameters to your preferred feel.

To add to the versitality of this instrument, a full polyfonic midi system is added.
Inspired by the first range of vanderPlas vibraphones we add a  full color touch display to control every feature in this instrument.
