Kastha Tarang 8 Bar Resonator
The range of metal bar instruments is wide, from the simple “Glockenspiel” for pre-school children to the large vibraphones of symphonic orchestras. The clear, crystal-like sound attracts the ear of the child and adult alike. SVARAM is mainly focusing on the technical advantage of very precise pitch control and the application of all possible tunings.
Different models are available from single tuned bars to sets of two chromatic octaves with resonators. Literally meaning: “the voice of wood”, these instruments are found in many countries of the African continent and south-east Asia and are now common, through introduction into the field of music education and orchestral music, virtually all over the world. From the simplest form of an Amadinda (bare, tuned wooden bars), to selected sets of hardwood with pipe resonators and assemblies on box resonators the xylophones come in various tunings (mostly pentatonic), often customer designed and specifically order.
