Aluphone Standard Chromatic Bells
(photo: Aluphone Standard as seen from the audience) The Aluphone Standard is a 1 1/3 octave chromatic set of Aluphone Bells. It is our most popiular model and often uset by drum corps. The instrument comes with a mounting system, designed to set up on a regular cymbal stands.
This model can be upgraded to a 2 1/2 oct. Aluphone Concert by simply adding the bass and high tone modules and you have the full 2 ½ octave range.
Aluphone will not be affected by high temperatures from direct sunlight, they are resistant to water, so they are perfect for outdoor use. Aluphone bells are very durable. Generaly you can play with marimba mallets. lt can be rubber mallets, yarn mallets and even plastic mallets. Each type changes the timbre a lot hard. If you use a wooden stick you will get a crystal clear bell sound and using a bow produces the sound of glass. We do NOT recommend to play hard with brass mallets, that can damage the bells, but of course you can play it soft with metal beaters and get a brilliant sound.
Range: C5 – E6. Tuning A=442. Measures: 61,8 x 7,9 inch (157 x 20 cm) Weight:24 lb (11 kg)
