In an effort to improve resonance and sound balance, Sonor has reworked their xylophone and metallophone resonator boxes. After extensive research resulting in alterations of the chambers, Sonor Glockenspiels can now achieve a more balanced and rich sound. Try one for yourself and hear the incredible difference.
FSC pure Pao Rosa rosewood bars for xylophones and special light alloy bars for metallophones.
FSC pure resonator boxes made from cross laminated birch plywood with 100% glued seams – no screws are used to hold the box together providing a more integral sound chamber.
New model SKU’s will be an extension of current SKU’s – e.g. SXP1.1, AMP1.1, GBXP1.1, AXP1.1, GBMP1.1 etc.
Tuning: precision tuning by hand, in the lower range overtone tuning, in the higher range fundamental tuning is applied to all models.
New models compliment all preceding models! Mix and match with ease.
