I had to take some time to play with this instrument – it's beautiful! This isn't your typical child's musical toy, this is an instrument. You play the Chimalong like a xylophone, but the metal tubes are precision-tuned to the same standards as that of the world-famous Woodstock Chimes, long tubular wind chimes that are the creation of a professional musician. This instrument, like the chimes, emits beautiful, rich tones. The 8 tubes are held in a rubber holder at each end, form an octave in the key of C, and each tube is color coded so any age child can play. A music book with color-coded notes to match the tubes of the Chimalong is included along with 2 mallets. A B-flat tube is also in the set and can be used in place of the B tube to perform songs in the key of F.
This instrument has been a big hit around our office, and I'm sure it will be a melodious pleasure in your house. Introduce your family to real music as they play.
