This instrument has well tuned bars of aluminium. It is sweet-sounding and would form the top and second element of  an ensemble of pitched percussion. It plays the  tune or second harmony line of the classroom orchestra. (If setting up class tuned percussion, one should also consider the German Studio 49 make.)

Alto glocks work well with the other parts of the metal chorus, ie the Soprano glock, Tenor metallophone or chime bars, and of course, Bass metallophone!

This ensemble is well complemented by the choir of Xylophones- Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass.

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! They do come with F#'s and Bb bars which came be fitted.Other bars may be bought as seperate items.

Manufactured in our factory from carefully selected timber and high quality aluminium and steel, our Soprano Diatonic Glockenspiel is lightweight, sturdy and durable and has been a popular instrument choice for schools and players for over 25 years. Great care and attention has been made in the production of this instrument to ensure that the quality of finish and tuning is perfect. All of our Perfect Pitch Glockenspiels have captivated notes and a crisp, clear bell type sound. Our Perfect Pitch instruments are always sprayed red to identify them as genuine Percussion Plus products. 
All instruments within the Perfect Pitch range mean just that; that there are no short cuts to the sound of this glockenspiel 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. Once played any other glockenspiel will just not sound the same.
