This attractive arched frame instrument features a 10 note musical scale in the key of C. The aluminium chime bars are playable from both sides and produce a bright bell-like tone when tapped with a beater. The bars are securely mounted on stainless steel cables allowing them to resonate without swinging around. This makes the instrument accessible and safe to play for all ages and abilities. The larch timber frame is supplied with galvanised steel anchors for concreting into the ground. As well as extending the lifespan of the timber, this versatile fixing means the instrument can be installed into any surface.
