Lyons Orff Metallophones are designed with both quality and economy in mind. These instruments begin with solid wood tone boxes, then add hand-tuned aluminum tone bars to combine for rich warm sound. All of our tone 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. Mallets are included with all diatonic units.
Sonor chime bars are mounted on a resonator box, may be used individually or with other bass instruments. The bars are available as deep bass, contrabass, and sub contrabass. Light Alloy (deep bass only) rosewood and palisono bar styles are available.
