Xylophones

The xylophone is a percussion instrument of the idiophone family. To produce its sound It uses tuned wooden note bars arranged on a frame and in the chromatic scale in the same format as you would find on a glockenspiel, marimba or piano. The word xylophone is also popularly used to refer to similar instruments of the idiophone family such as; the metallophone or pixiphone which is a much smaller instrument. Variations of the xylophone have been played since ancient times originating in Asia in the 9th century. The xylophone came to Africa in around 500 AD and was adapted into the early marimba or balafon where wooden note bars would be used.

The xylophone is an extremely popular instrument with music educators due to its fully chromatic tuning and small size and octave range. We have many options available from traditional balafons to colourful kids instruments and also individual chromatic and diatonic halves as well as soprano, alto and bass models.
