This alto metallophone chromatic half is designed to be paired with the PP019 diatonic instrument. Its frame is slightly taller than the PP019 allowing the ‘black notes’ to sit above and overhang the ‘white notes’, just like a piano keyboard.
As part of the Classic Red Box range, great care has gone into the build quality of the instrument. The box features four resonating chambers that, with the accurately tuned note bars, produce a good, resonant sound quality.
There are spaces for the F# and Bb note bars supplied with the diatonic half. The beaters are not included but we thoroughly recommend our PP070 pair of hard beaters.
An alternative alto chromatic half metallophone is available from our Harmony range – PP5020.
