What’s the difference between a xylophone and a glockenspiel? The materials, and therefore, the sound.
Xylophone keys are made from wood, where glockenspiel keys are made from different types of metal. While they look similar, they couldn’t sound more different.
Playing the glockenspiel has the same basics as the xylophone, and is just as easy to play. Simply tap the keys with a mallet, and you’ll instantly hear a sweet, bell-like sound.
Tuned percussion instruments such as this one, allow children to engage with the two main elements of music; rhythm and melody.Create different rhythms with the mallets, and different melodies with the notes.
This glockenspiel has:
An ergonomic design to easily fit on a lap or table
Eight notes perfectly tuned to a C major scale (C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C)
Purposefully designed resonator chamber to enhance the beautiful sound
Bright, colourful keys to enable children to quickly recognise each one
A solid, mangowood base
Like all our instruments, this set can last through many hours of play.
