Sonor Palisono TAKX 100 Tenor-Alto Xylophone

Looking for a top of the line, premium Orff instrument? Look no further than Sonor's Palisono series. Palisono bars are made from high-quality fiberglass and overtone tuned for premium sound quality and intonation. The fiberglass material is resistant to humidity and will maintain intonation regardless of seasonal weather changes.

Sonor fiberglass tenor-alto xylophone; diatonic, C1 to C3, with F# and Bb (19 bars); solid wood resonator box. The fiberglass bars are overtone tuned to A=440, the industry standard. Palisono (fiberglass) xylophones have a similar resonance to rosewood xylophones. Their advantage is that Palisono is not hygroscopic (pitch is not affected by changes in temperature or humidity), so these bars are ideal for humid climates. Sonor tenor-alto xylophones are unique because they cover a range of two full octaves, giving you space for more children to play on the same instrument.

Dimensions of resonator box are approximately:

  • 33-1/4" long.
  • 8-7/8" high.
  • 7-3/4" wide at widest point
  • 4-5/8" wide at narrowest point.  
  • With the bars on, the widest point is approximately 10-3/4" wide (the length of the C2 bar).

Includes 2 pairs of Sonor SCH50 felt mallets
