Budget concert xylophone for schools
The Percussion Plus PP092 is a budget concert xylophone ideal for schools and amateur orchestras. It is robustly built from high quality materials and produces a surprisingly well balanced tone capable of cutting through the sound of large ensembles.
Every one of the 43 tone bars is made from seasoned African padauk, a relatively inexpensive hardwood renowned for its good acoustic properties, durability, and attractive grain. These are held together on a thick cord attached to sturdy metal rails, and sit above lightweight aluminium resonators. The keyboard has a range of three and a half octaves from F4-C8 and is tuned to A4 = 442Hz.
Each bar is ‘quint tuned’ meaning that the first audible harmonic above the fundamental note is the third partial (an octave and a fifth above). This gives the xylophone a bolder piercing tone that is generally preferred by American percussionists over the European ‘octave tuning’.
The xylophone is supported by a height adjustable metal frame that can be folded down easily for storage or transportation, and features 4 lockable castors for wheeling around a stage or between classrooms. There are no accessories included with the WXN44C but the frame does have a built in mallet holder.
