Perfect for beginner instrumentation.
The Lyons Six Piece Diatonic Orff Set is perfect for your beginner instrumentation. Many customers ask for assistance regarding what combination of Orff instruments to purchase for their program. Lyons recommends more xylophones than metallophones in sets, since the ring of the metallophone can overshadow the crisp sound of the wooden xylophone.
This set features the following Lyons Orff Instruments combination: one soprano xylophone, one soprano metallophone, two alto xylophones, one alto metallophone and one bass xylophone. Each diatonic Lyons Orff Instrument features an all-glued construction resonator box for excellent tone plus F# and Bb bars to allow your group to play in various keys.
Lyons Orff xylophones are designed with both quality and economy in mind. These instruments begin with solid wood tone boxes, then add hand-tuned rosewood tone bars to combine for rich warm sound. The Metallophones have solid wood tone boxes and add hand-tuned aluminum tone bars to combine for rich warm sound.
All Lyons bars are backed by a lifetime tuning warranty. Chromatic add-ons are separate tone boxes with the sharp/flat key to be used with a diatonic unit to have a fully chromatic set.
The bass xylophone range is C to A1. The alto range C1 to A2 an octave higher and sound as written. The soprano xylophone range is C2 to A3. The bass metallophone range C to A1. The alto metallophone range is C1 to A2
