The 25 bar model
Wouldn’t it be fun to make a Xylophone with your kids or grandkids? Well, now you can with these Xylophone Bar Kits.
There are three different kits to choose from: 8, 13 or 25 bars and they come with the bars tuned to the required pitches (with the notes stamped in each bar). The kits also contain simple, but complete instructions. You can even get free music online from the manufacturer, Tripar Inc. The kits are available at Rockler and Lee Valley, ranging in price from $8.00 – $24.00.
With the holiday’s right around the corner, maybe you’ll consider getting a kit for the special child (or children) in your life. Then you can spend some quality time together in the shop helping them make their very own Xylophone. After that, let’s hope it’s music to your ears.
