This new series by SONOR is just what your classroom or studio had been looking for! All the features listed below are unique to this new line and add a great opportunity to add more instruments too. I really like the new pins system, in that the bars won't fall off this alto xylophone when tipped over. Remember to roll the bars gently to the left or right to remove from the resonator box, vs lifting directly off. Just takes a little practice to snap the bars back on too.
Also check out the new Sonor SMART series xylophone pack with Palisono bars. That set includes one soprano and two alto xylophones - a great way to add more xylophones for your classroom!
The Sonor SMART Series instruments elevate performance with their enhanced sound developed through acoustical research and innovative resonance chamber designs.
The portability of the lightweight SMART series makes teaching easier, both in and out of the classroom. With an innovative bar mounting pin and unique resonator box design, teachers can easily stack the instruments, maximizing storage space. Students experience improved ergonomics with the integrated riser elevation. An innovative "accessory garage" is built into the resonance box of each SMART series instrument allowing for storage of the accidental bars and a pair of mallets.
Each note of the SMART series instruments has its own acoustical chamber within the resonance box, creating a more focused tone while reducing unwanted resonance. SMART series pins are shatterproof and interlock under the bar with a newly designed pin strip. The pins no longer protrude above the bar. As a result, the sound bars are tightly secure during transport and intense playing. This design allows for easy removal and swapping of the bars.
