Deagan Vibraharp (Vibraphone)

A restored Deagan 555 Presto Vibraharp (Vibraphone) sampled with hard and soft mallets and processed through a variety of pedals.

The story

I don’t know why, but I seem to have a penchant for purchasing instruments in desperate need of repair, and then investing way too much time and effort into fixing them up. I came across this Deagan 555 Vibraharp on Facebook marketplace. It seemed like a steal at only $200. I rented a truck, picked it up, and the next day, I started assessing what I’d bought. $800 in parts and professional restoration of the keys, and hours and hours of labor later, I have a delightful little vibraphone.

  • Excellent Vibes pack

    I have quite as few Vibes libraries, both free and paid (premium) and this one sounds the most real to me. If it only had a basic set of staccato and sustained samples it would be great, but all the additional patches make it so much more versatile for a variety of musical styles. Thanks so much for this.

    This one is right up my alley. I typically reach for a synthesizer if i want floaty bell-y stuff, but this stuff is so organic that I'll probably stick to this for the time being. Doesn't sound Vibraphoney at all. (I'm sorry.)
