Auris Pentatonic Glockenspiel - 7 ToneMercurius
These maple wood glockenspiels are made by Auris in Sweden. They have 7 brass plates, 2 mallets, and are tuned to the pentatonic range: d.-e.-g.-a.-b.-d.-e.. The chime bars are coated with a fine layer of beeswax which enhances the soft, natural shine of the brass. The resonating body made of maple wood is treated with wood varnish and beeswax polish. These glockenspiels are very finely tuned and have a clear, pure overtone. With their crystal clear and spherical tones they create a particularly lovely sound experience.
