  • Reviews

The 1600 range of xylophones from Studio 49 feature solid wood note bars, crafted from Pao Rosa which is a sustainable alternative to rosewood. The sound quality is excellent, full, rich and thanks to the patented design of the resonance box has bright and sustaining character. This alto model has the range C40 (middle C) up to A61 and also includes 2 x F# and 1 x Bb. A good choice for education, the instrument is built to last and comes complete with 2 beaters. It is also easy to move, thanks to its built-in handles, and takes up minimum space in the store cupboard.
For a fully chromatic instrument, this xylophone can be combined with the 49-HAX1600 alto chromatic half.
