This high quality Pentatonic Glockenspiel from Auris produces clear, pure tones that create a lovely sound experience for young children.
Like our other pentatonic instruments, this glockenspiel uses a five-note scale, tuned to the following notes:
The bars are coated with a fine layer of beeswax to enhance the luster of the brass. The hardwood maple body is finished with wood varnish and beeswax polish.
Because all the notes are in harmony with one another, any song you play will sound beautiful and in tune, even if you are not a musician and can't read music.
The gently curved body and bright, clear tone of this instrument makes it ideal for a parent or teacher to play for a child.
Comes with one rubber mallet and one wooden mallet.
If you are looking for a glockenspiel for a child to play, please see our Children's Pentatonic Glockenspiel, which is easier for a child to hold and has a more mellow tone.
Note: Because musical notation is different in northern Europe where the Auris Glockenspiel is made, the note B is represented by the letter H on this instrument.
