This Percussion Plus instrument has been a well regarded and certainly popular model over the last 20 years. It is produced using a solid wood base from only selected timber – the quality of the wood affects the overall tone, so this is important – this coupled with high quality steel note bars makes for a clear, resonant overall sound which is ideal for the classroom or school ensemble.
The tuning on all Percussion Plus models is exceptional which is one of the reasons the brand has performed so well in the education sector. The build quality is also excellent, so they really do last too. The range is 22 notes, from C64 to A85 . It is even comparatively lightweight which makes moving it around the school particularly easy.
