The metallophone has a much warmer and more mellow sound quality when compared to the similarly constructed glockenspiel. It is a popular instrument in education and our Percussion Plus Classic Red Box instruments are market leaders and offer exceptional build and tone quality. This bass diatonic metallophone has four resonating chambers – which creates a full and details tone quality – and a hand operated damper for on or off damping effects. Build quality is excellent with accurately tuned note bars mounted onto a solid wooden frame, these instruments are designed for schools and are built to last.
The PP021 diatonic half can be paired with the PP022 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 C, G and F. The beaters are not included but we thoroughly recommend our PP071 pair of medium beaters.
An alternative bass diatonic metallophone is available from our Harmony range – PP5021.
