The metallophone has a much more sustaining sound than a xylophone and the aluminium used on these is first class. The solid pine box has a patented design which incorporates more than one chamber, thus extending the resonance even further. Each of the 16 bars is 30 x 6mm in size and are engrave with the note name. The frame of the instrument incorporates handles which makes moving these instruments around the classroom easy and their solid construction means they last extremely well in a busy school.
This model includes an F# and a Bb for extra versatility, however for a completely chromatic instrument this metallophone can be paired with the 49-HSM1000
