No, it's not a xylophone. It's a glockenspiel! This Orff percussion instrument is practically sized and has a pleasant soprano or alto sound range. Made by respected manufacturers Studio 49 and Sonor, these glockenspiels are ideal for both children and adults, and make for great gifts. Whether you prefer improvising, playing your favorite songs or are beginning to learn musical theory, treat yourself to a glockenspiel instrument, mallets and more from West Music.
Make any recital, concert, or orchestral setting better with the incredibly versatile Orff glockenspiels. Used in almost every genre of music from hip-hop and jazz to rock n’ roll and classical, this instrument produces slightly higher pitches than the xylophone
that work well into all sorts of songs. Crafted from metal bars rather than the wood of similar instruments, the glockenspiel is able to reach alto, soprano, and tenor alto ranges. Whether you want simple small-range pieces for beginners, or require more elaborate double row ones for the more advanced, we have all that you need!
