Indestructible Cloth Covered Orff Instrument Tubing
All Suzuki Orff instruments come equipped with our new heat and tear resistant cloth covered tubing. Long lasting and durable, the new tubing will not shrink, melt or break. And, improved sound quality makes this a lasting innovation.
Built in mallet storage.
Every xylophone and metallophone has a convenient place to store your mallets so you’re sure they’ll be there next time you play.
Chromatic bar storage.
We’ve included a special place to store the BH and FG bars right on the side of xylophones and metallophones. It’s a no cost option!
Note name identification.
No more difficulty putting the keyboard back to a C major configuration. The note names are labeled inside.
Note name on top – pins on the bottom.
Others put note names on the bottom where they can’t be seen. We put them on top and place the pins on the bottom, preventing them from bending if removed incorrectly.
Metallophone dampers –standard equipment.
Metallophones ring on and on - you need a damper. Suzuki metallophones have them as standard equipment with adjustable handle and lock down.
