Our Metallophones are similarly constructed and tuned to our glockenspiels but the sound is more mellow and has a warmer quality. Manufactured in our factory from carefully selected timber and with thirteen aluminium notes this strong and sturdy alto metallophone provides the player with a fantastic deep resonance from its four resonating sound chambers and has a hand operated damper allowing for on or off damping effects.
Great care and attention has been made in the production of this instrument to ensure that the quality of finish and tuning is perfect and our Classic Red Box instruments are always sprayed red to identify them as genuine Percussion Plus products.
This instrument is precisely tuned to A440 (pitch standard), like all of the instruments in our educational range. The sound quality is superb, other metallophones simply do not sound the same!
The PP019 diatonic half can be paired with the PP020 chromatic half to make a fully chromatic instrument.
The F# and Bb note bars are supplied with the diatonic half, allowing you to play in the keys of C, G and F. The beaters are not included but we thoroughly recommend our PP070 pair of hard beaters.
An alternative alto diatonic metallophone is available from our Harmony range – PP5019.
