Xylophones Alpha


The Alpha Series Xylophone strikes an iconic pose in any venue. Featuring our wide uniformed width Alpha tuned Honduras Rosewood bars for consistent tuning and ease of playing throughout the range of the instrument. Our Voyager frame promotes perfect instrument height adjustment for any size player via its easily accessible handle. The flowing resonators provide optimal projection for large rooms and are available in a choice of 3 unique powder coated finishes. The beautiful flowing oak rails create motion from every possible angle and are available in 3 stunning hand stained finishes.

The Alpha Series family of instruments represents the state of the art in modern instrument design. The high sweeping arc of the resonators, rich wood stain finish and polished aluminum name plate all merge seamlessly to form a visual and aural statement in modern design. Only the finest aged Honduras Rosewood is considered for the keyboard. Each bar is then tuned via the Alpha Tuning Method that ensures not only the perfect fundamental note but the perfect harmonic structure throughout the upper register. Each instrument is available in a choice of resonator color and choice of rail and end piece for an instrument as individual as you are.


World class design inside and out is what the Alpha Series represents. Hand stained solid French Oak rails and end pieces are crowned by a distinctive polished aluminum name plate to announce that this is something special. The height adjustable Voyager frame has been updated with a high arching cross support that disappears behind the sweeping arc of the Alpha resonators to provide a stunning look while providing the perfect soundstage for your audience. Integral cross rails and end caps provide structural integrity while maintaining the smooth flowing lines.

Experience superior aural and visual design at a level never before imagined. Experience Alpha.
