The Soloist Series xylophone from Pearl is the perfect addition to any musical assembly in search of a top notch instrument. This 4.0 octave xylophone is constructed of carefully selected, slightly graduated Honduras Rosewood bars. These bars only slightly graduated yet still provide optimum sound quality. The patented voyager frame system allows for effortless adjustment to a wide range of playing heights. Also, the resonators and rails fold in half to further the ease with which this piece may be transported. This instrument is tuned through the sixth overtone to offer complete control over all aspects of the sound. Precise tuning and voicing provide for balanced sound throughout the entire range of the xylophone. This package is further sweetened by the addition of mallets and a cover so that you can begin playing immediately and keep your investment safe.
