Introducing the Majestic Deluxe 18 note 1.25" concert chimes - Lacquered
The Majestic C6518 deluxe orchestral chimes feature an 18 note range from C5 to C6 with 1.25" diameter tubes (1.5" tubes are available, see C6618). Each tube is attached to the frame using the traditional steel wire hanging system ensuring brilliant resonance.
An enclosed damper box ensures unhindered performance with a smooth pedal function, while adjustable wheels allow instrument levelling to facilitate free resonance of the tubes. The robust frame is perfectly suited to moving the instrument between rehearsal and performance venues and provides assurance when playing. It also has rounded caps to avoid sharp edges.
With unparalleled resonance and consistency of tone, these orchestral chimes from Majestic are the choice for orchestral performances and professional recording sessions.
Majestic is a brand of thoughtfully designed instruments for the professional, the educator, and today’s percussion student, utilising carefully constructed ideas born from both traditional percussion instrument heritage and a culture of innovation. The family firm was founded in 1921, supplying organs, pianos and wind instruments with the production of percussion following shortly after.
In 1960 the Majestic brand name was introduced, starting with drum kits which were prevalent among rock bands in the Netherlands. Orchestral and marching percussion soon became the corner stone of the brand, with timpani, marching drum and tuned percussion becoming areas of speciality for Majestic.
To this day product development, engineering, and production are overseen by family members and every model must adhere to stringent standards of craftsmanship and performance.
Please note: all large tuned percussion instruments such as xylophones, marimbas, and vibes etc. are delivered boxed and require assembly.
