Series 1000 is a lightweight and easily portable series of xylophones and metallophones readily suited for an early childhood program in the home, school or church. The resonator boxes are compact with integrated handles for easy movement--perfect for circle time activities.
The Alto xylophone includes 16 bars with a range of C to A'. One pair of CS 44 mallet included.
Best Answer:The bars of the 1000 and 1600 series are made out of the same material. This means that the pitch is equal and the sound quality is very close. The main difference is the size of the resonator boxes. However, the 1000 series has specially designed chambers to help promote the best possible resonance and sound quality.
