the marimba is not a xylophone. they are both in the wood keyboard family but both have a very different sound. in this video the bottom left is a vibraphone, a metal keyboard that has a pedal you hold down to sustain the sound, the bottom middle is a glockenspiel (bells) often used for melodic parts since it stands above the rest. the other three are marimbas, a large wood keyboard that has a very mellow sound and is often played in the lower register for the deep beautiful sound
