Great visual and manipulatable tools.

great value and good reviews
Laszlo M on Jan 26, 2013
The case, extra mallets and keys, musical scale for teaching notation, color coding, and affordable price make this a great bargain. I ordered 2 for Christmas. Granddaughters loved them. This purchase is a gift for another grandchild.

It got good reviews; it has a case; two sets of mallets; and can be used to teach the scales. More than the others in its category.

Is this individual tone bars or one unit?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2013
Best Answer: This glockenspiel has individual bars that can be removed (ie the F's and B in the key of C). I generally have students leave it in the case when they play, but the glockenspiel can be removed from the exterior case if you choose.

can you remove a single bar? or are they fastened into the box?

Best Answer: In fact, the whole instrument can be lifted out of the case and each individual key is held on with a rubber "knob" (the little black dot you see in the picture) and can be removed or exchanged. My grand kids really enjoy playing with this instrument.

What is overall dimension of box and mallet length?
First Name L on Feb 19, 2013
Best Answer: It was given to my granddaughter so I won't be able to measure, but I can say it is a lovely instrument with a beautiful tone. She loved it and I plan on ordering one for myself to keep here for our other grandkids to use. I wish there was some sheet music to use with it. This company was recommended by a elementary school music teacher I know.

I would like to find out the width of each bar. I have both Basic Beat BBR8 8-note Resonator Bells w/ Case and Sonor BWG Kinder Glockenspiel. My 3 yro son prefers the Basis Beat BBR8 8-note as the bars are wide (measuring at 1 & 3/16") and each bar can be lifted of the case individually. It would be ideal if chromatics add ons are available. As they are not, I wonder this Basic Beat BB12B 12-Note Glockenspiel has wider bars compare to Sonor BWG Kinder Glockenspiel which, has 3/4" wide bars. The Sonor has a lovely tone but I find it works better with older children. So, can anybody inform the width of the bars?
D C on Mar 13, 2014
Best Answer: The bars are approx. 1" wide each. They are removable and come with B flats & F sharps. They have a great sound & are highly recommended!
