This beautiful Auris Glockenspiel is tuned to the 5-pentatonic Scale: d-e-g-a-b(h)-d-e. The pentatonic scale will always sound lovely even if you do not know how to play or read music. The curved body allows for bright, clear sounds that always sound harmonious.
Auris Glockenspiels are finely tuned and have clear, pure overtones. Their clear, spherical tones create a lovely sound experience. The tone bars consist of a brass alloy coated with beeswax to enhance and preserve their soft, natural shine. The resonating body is made of varnished maple, and is polished with beeswax.
This Glockenspiel is different than our straight bodied Glockenspiel for children in that its curved body allows a brighter tone and is better suited for parents and teachers playing for children. Our straight bodied glockenspiel is also harmonious but the straight body allows for more mellow tones and is easier for children to hang onto and situate.
