Auris 7 Diatonic Block Glockenspiel
Auris Glockenspiel are some of the best in the world. As they say,
"We make the glockenspiel so that they shall meet the need for true tone and beauty, that every person carries as an inner longing. Our intention is to inspire the player, wake the curiosity and lust for playful musical creativity.
The process of making a new instrument model always starts with a careful examination of the basic natural phenomena related to it. We try to refine the most typical qualities of each instrument. By evoking and releasing the inherent sonorous potential of the material, the instrument will appear in its most simple and genuine beauty.
The exclusive choice of materials and the characteristic design is a result of our aim for perfection of sound as well as function.
The most significant and fundamental goal of Auris is to achieve harmony between what the ear hears, the hand feels and the eye sees. This is of out most importance, especially for a growing child. To have true acoustic stimulation of the senses musically, will harmonise and strengthen the whole human being. According to the latest medical studies, this increases both creativity, intelligence and the capability of learning also theoretical subjects"
The Auris Glockenspiel has tones made of a brass alloy and a wooden body of Maple Wood. The tone bars are coated with a fine layer of beeswax and nothing else.The beeswax provide a mild natural gloss of the brass
Comes with one wooden and one rubber mallet.
Materials: Brass Alloy, Maple Wood and Beeswax.
* We also stock the 7 tone block Auris glockenspiel. We are often asked what the difference is between the two. They are both beautiful instruments and play celestial sounds, however there is more work in the making of the curved ones which result a longer and more resonant tone than the block ones. Please feel free to ring us for a demonstration over the phone or come into the shop to have a play. It needs to be heard to be appreciated!
Made in Europe.
Please note: this Glockenspiel is a musical instrument and not a toy. While it is suitable for children to play, it should be treated with care and is not made for rough play.
