NON-GRADUATED QUINT TUNED BARS
Alpha Series Xylophones feature our wide uniformed Alpha tuned Honduras Rosewood bars for consistent tuning and ease of playing throughout the range of the instrument. The bars are quint tuned. Quint tuning has a fifth tuned in between the fundamental and double octave for the short, penetrating sound that cuts through the largest ensembles. Quint tuning was the used on the classic American Xylophones of the 20s and 30s.
