For Studio 49 soprano or alto metallophones made between 1975-1992.
If your soprano or alto metallophone has a plastic insert as a liner inside the resonator box, this is the repair part for you. One black rubber mounting strip, rubber sleeves for the nails and a felt strip are to be used on either side of the Soprano or Alto metallophone.
Best Answer:Mine came out simply by ripping it out from one end. If there's residue, you can use a putty knife or an exacto knife to get out the rest. I had little felt "puffs"/residue left on the bottom, but it didn't affect the instrument at all.
I have a Studio 49 Alto Metallophone that I purchased in 1989, and I need to replace the tubing that covers the metal pins. The metallophone has felt on one side and rubber on the other side. But it does NOT have a plastic lining. Would this be the correct tubing for the instrument?
Best Answer:Hi, Angie. I'm Kendall from Dancing Wood Music Instrumentarium Restoration. If it was purchased in 1989, it has to have a plastic resonator. You can't see that unless you remove some bars and look inside. They covered the outside with a wood vaneer. That's a long way of saying "Yes". You may wat to put a dab of elmers on each of the rubber caps to prevent loss. Also-put the felt on AFTER the new caps are in place. dancingwoodmusic
