Vertical Metallophone (Timber Frame)
size: approx. W1.3m x H1.6m
materials: aluminium tubing, stainless steel cables and fixings
New for 2022, the 10 note Vertical Metallophone complements our Vertical Xylophone while providing an extended tonal range. The bright sound of the metallophone is ideal for picking out familiar tunes or for playing sustained chords. It is accessible from both sides, making it perfect for paired playing, call and response activities and teaching purposes. The metallophone is securely attached top and bottom to the timber frame with stainless steel cables. With no moving parts, playing the instrument is easy and safe and maintenance is minimal. The natural timber frame will look equally at home in a woodland or a playground and is fitted to steel ground anchors for a greatly extended lifespan, whatever the weather! More photos to follow.
