This good quality British-made Soprano Diatonic Xylophone has synthetic notebars. It has a satisfying sound and would form the top element of  an ensemble of pitched percussion.  (If setting up, one should also consider the German Studio 49 make ,especially the rosewood type.)

Soprano xylophones work well with the other parts of the wooden chorus, ie the Alto Xylo or deep resonator bars, and of course, the Bass Xylophone.

This ensemble is well complemented by the choir of Glockenspiels, Soprano and  Alto, with Tenor and Bass Metallophones providing the rich sonorities.

These sets of instruments will  form the central core of the Orff-based Classroom orchestra.

Naturally, all these instruments would, ideally, have the chromatic halves!

Soprano Diatonic Xylophone - PP023

Manufactured in the UK from carefully selected timber, and synthetic bars to closely resemble rosewood, our soprano diatonic xylophone is lightweight, sturdy and durable and is our most popular instrument within the Perfect Pitch range. All instruments within the Perfect Pitch range mean just that; that there are no short cuts to the sound of this xylophone as great care has been taken to ensure that the instrument has followed strict precision tuning control to A440 (pitch standard). This standard of tuning is applied to our educational ranges, not just the professional instruments making us the first choice for schools or players requiring their instruments to be note perfect.
 
Great care and attention has been made in the production of this instrument to ensure that the quality of finish is perfect and with its four resonating chambers producing beautiful tones and its synthetic durable notes, this xylophone will be hard to beat and once played, other xylophones will just not sound the same.
 
PP023 can be accompanied with a PP024  see drop-downSoprano Chromatic Half Xylophone to make a fully chromatic instrument.
 
PP054 Stand on wheels is also available to suit this instrument.
 
An alternative Soprano Diatonic Xylophone is available from our Harmony range.
