It says the bars are made of rosewood, but I'm guessing that's a typo. I'm comparing the 2 Easycussion instruments. Are the glockenspiel bars made of steel and the metallophones made of aluminum?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2015
Best Answer: That is correct. The glockenspiel bars are steel and metallophone bars are aluminum.

is this a glockenspiel?
Gabriel B on Mar 4, 2015
Best Answer: No; this is a pentatonic metallophone which is meant to be very mobile. Although they are similar, the main difference is that the bars are larger and thicker than glockenspiel bars. The bars are also lower pitched than glockenspiel bars.
