A classroom full of xylophones or glockenspiels is not complete without Orff bass, contrabass and sub-contrabass bars. Housed on top of resonator boxes made from fine wood grain, these instruments from Sonor and Studio 49 provide a harmonic and rhythmic foundation to beginning music education. The bars, constructed from fiberglass or wood, have a resonating power and distinct tone that will enhance any Orff ensemble. Find the right bass bars for your classroom today, or buy a set!
The bass, deep bass, and contrabass bars may be used individually or in combination with a bass xylophone or a bass metallophone to enhance the fundamental tones of your Orff ensemble. Each bar has an extraordinarily full and colorful sound. Pitches range from C two octaves below middle C on the piano, to the A above middle C.
These bars with individual resonator boxes, are also outstanding for Music Therapy with deaf or hard-of-hearing students because vestigial hearing may be stimulated by the tone and contact vibrations transmitted which the deaf may perceive.
