The one and only original bar chimes.
The Spectrasound Mark Tree bar chime is the original bar chime invented in the early 70's by LA studio percussionist Mark Stevens. These bar chimes are THE model which every other bar chime copies and attempts to imitate.
Every set of Spectrasound Mark Tree Bar Chimes feature a beautifully finished beech header bar, nodally drilled bar holes, and 35 highly polished aluminum or brass bars. Choose the SM-1 Recording Brass hollow tube model with a delicate microtonal shimmer, or the SM-7 Recording Natural with solid aluminum bars for full range sweep.
Spectrasound is the ONLY COMPANY to use highly durable Kevlar bar ties which maximize bar swing to allow for uninhibited resonance. (Note: Kevlar is the material used in bullet proof vests!)
In addition, each Mark Tree® comes pre-drilled to accept our easy motion damper bar. Using a unique barrel nut attachment system, you can attach or remove your damper within 30 seconds! Each damper comes with two large chrome tension adjustment knobs which facilitates custom tensioning of the damper bar.
