These fiberglass xylophones have great resonance at the right price! My personal favorite as an education consultant is the alto xylophone as typically this voice is the real work horse of an Orff instrument or drumming ensemble. The mallets on each of these instruments are really suited to bring the best sound quality out of each of them! -Judy
Sonor's Global Beat Series Orff instruments are all about quality with budget-saving prices. The Global Beat xylophones' overtone-tuned fiberglass bars provide a solid foundation for your Orff ensemble.
Global Beat resonator boxes are constructed from durable basswood and feature multiple sound chambers to enhance resonance.
Each Global Beat xylophone includes a bar bag and a pair of mallets. Use the bar bag to store mallets as well as accidental bars. Note names are conveniently stamped in the middle of each bar and on the inside of the resonator box.
Retaining pins are constructed from durable and flexible materials. Global beat instruments utilize fabric cording meaning the bar supports won't dry out and crack like standard rubber tubing.
Includes: 1 Pair of Mallets 1 Bar Bag 1 Set of Accidental Bars (F# x2, Bb x1)
Range: Soprano - c" - a"' Alto - c' - a" Bass - c - a'
A Great Buy!
The Sonor Global Beat AX-GBF Fiberglass Alto Diatonic Xylophone was a great purchase when you need to add to the Orff instrumentarium but don't have a lot of money. It has characteristics of both a metallophone and a xylophone, with a very pleasing ring.
