"Bill Youhass at Fall Creek Marimbas has been tuning the mallet instruments at the Eastman School of Music for over 30 years. The superb job he has done has provided the school with the highest quality mallet sound. If you need mallet instruments tuned, there's no better place than Fall Creek Marimbas."John H. Beck

"Bill Youhass' expertise in the tuning of mallet instruments is by far the finest work existing today. I have entrusted my 1927 Leedy xylophone to him for many years and he has always treated the instrument with the greatest care and personal touch. Bill is simply the best, and I cannot thank him enough for all he has accomplished in his field."
Fast, Professional, Affordable Tuning and Repair Services
We are glad to discuss with you every aspect of the condition of your mallet instruments...both for us to understand your wishes and concerns, and for you to fully understand all the options available.
This is MOST important where tuning is concerned because this is the least understood aspect of mallet instrument care; and especially because there is just too much mis-leading, sound-byte information available.
We feel mallet instrument tuning involves not just objective scientific and technical knowledge, but also artistic, subjective choices. We therefore invite you to become involved in the work being done with your instruments. Ask questions, how?, why?, what if?, why not?... It is important to us that you fully understand the work being done and, again, the options available to you.
