This glockenspiel (chime) has seven removable, pure copper tone bars that form a slightly curved resonating wall which, through its shape and spatial arrangement, stimulates free and natural play.
The copper creates a light, warm, bell-like tone with a relatively short reverberation. This is of great benefit when playing melodies, because the often audible metallophonic interference (tonal friction between 2 intervals) is exceptionally low.

I’m truly enjoying my glockenspiel, and so does my family.
Acorns &Twigs was really attentive to my needs and concerns, when there was an issue to resolve. And the follow up was friendly and engaging. I’m feeling like a member of their family, almost,:).
Oh thank you Mark! It’s been a pleasure serving you :)
Happy Music Making….
