Xylophones

Xylophones are instruments with removable tuned wooden bars. Usually the bars are placed on a solid resonator box to give maximum sound.  Empire Music carries Suzuki and Emus brand xylophones in soprano, alto and bass models. Emus also offers a tenor/alto model.  Although the Orff Shulwerk method works with diatonic instruments, chromatic add-ons for all instruments are available. The word xylophone is sometimes used to describe small bell sets.

The notes and ranges on the Xylophones are the same as for the metallophones. soprano C5-A6 , alto C4-A5, bass C3-A4. Each xylophone comes with 1 Bb and 2F#s and 2 pairs of appropriate mallets. The tenor/alto model goes from C4-C6 with 2 Bb and 2F# bars.

These instruments are highly durable and resistant to heavy use, designed to hold up to wear and damage to the bars and body.  The xylophone resonator boxes come with a 1-year warranty, the bars have a 5-year warranty. Should mallets go missing, bars go astray, or a need for a stand arises, we have a variety of additional accessories and replacement parts for sale.

Please consider the following models we have for sale and if you would like information on starting an Orff programme or on any of the instruments or books we carry please contact us today.
