Marimba vs. Xylophone: What's the Difference?

Xylophones and marimbas are very similar mallet percussion-style instruments, but they're certainly not the same. Both xylophones and marimbas have wooden bars that are tuned to the appropriate notes, but the marimba has a much larger range.

Marimbas are the largest instrument in the mallet percussion family (which also includes xylophones, chimes, vibraphones, and glockenspiels—also known as "orchestral bells") and can cover five octaves beginning at C. The sound is often described as full and dark.

Meanwhile, the xylophone's range is higher and smaller, ranging two to four octaves and starting at F.
