Data sheet

  • Series: 1600



Studio 49 can be described as the Rolls Royce of Orff style instruments. The xylophones and other barred instruments are legendary for their craftmanship and musical quality. All instruments are hand tuned using a technique, called overtone tuning, in a special tuning chamber.

The instruments are durable and are still serviceable even after 20 years of withstanding the rigours of classroom teaching. The testament to that still stands in a lot of South African class rooms.
