Auris 7 Tone Pentatonic Glockenspiel
Auris is located in the heart of the Waldorf world in beautiful Järna, south of Stockholm. They are renowned for their quality musical instruments.
This pentatonic 7-tone glockenspiel is fully harmonious, meaning that it will make wonderful-sounding music by children, no matter what the song. It is therefore a perfect instrument for use in home and early childhood education settings. It also makes an excellent instrument for musical games and storytelling.
Rudolf Steiner, the founder of the Waldorf education movement, noted that due to its lower (432 Hz) tuning, it is also especially suited for therapeutic and relaxation purposes.
The AURIS-Glockenspiel tone 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.
