is this the rubber strip that fits underneath the pegs on a glockenspiel? The rubber strips on our glockenspiels are all broken and need replacing but this looks like rubber tubing rather than a log strip. Can anyone help me?
Best Answer:This is the rubber tubing used for the xylophone and metallaphone repair NOT for the glockenspiels. However the Studio 49 AG-02 10' Tubing for Soprano/Alto Glockenspiel will work, I think, on any glockenspiel. If you are looking to replace the peg strips be sure to get the same brand strips as the instrument you have. Sizes can vary greatly. The tubing however you simply weave in between the pegs and secure at the ends either with a brass tack or the like.
Thanks for the very speedy replies. Our glockenspiels are like the Angel AX27K - although an older version and only have 25 notes. The piece of rubber is a long sticky strip that runs down underneath the bars. They don't wind round the pins as in the xylophones. The actual pins are to the side of the rubber strip.So not convinced that it is the Studio AG - 02 that I need.
This rubber cording is for all Sonor Meisterklasse, Primary or Global Beat xylophones and metallophones. The kind you want is Replacement tubing for Studio 49 glockenspiels (200795, 200794, 200788, or 200787). One set will cover about 4 glockenspiels. Plus the rubber tubing does not go under the pegs, it goes around the peg.
I don't think so. That looks like cording for soprano and altos. They always give you extra cord, so you have to cut it. It is a cord, but I think this one is too thick for glocks. You might want to contact Sonor (or whichever company your glocks are from) directly about tubing for your glock, before you buy.
Dear Judy, I used the tubing under the bars of a bass xylophone and a bass metallaphone as well as parts of it under the bars of an alto xylophone. I think the tubing would work under the glockenspiel. You can cut it to any length you want. Gary Vander Hart, Sioux County String Center.
The AG-02 that Adrianne mentioned is what you're looking for. This is the tubing that weaves between the pegs, allowing the bar to vibrate. You should be able to repair at least two full glocks with the AG-02 rubber. Good luck!
