Choroi Tubular Bells

Choroi Tubular Bells are chimes of copper pipes which create a vibrant bell-like tone. The sound is reinforced by the curved ash wood frame, the V-shaped resonance box, and the hammered surface of the bell pipes. Different mallets can be used to produce different timbres. Achieving a clear, bell-like sound requires a hard mallet.

Choroi Glockenspiels

This glockenspiel has removable, pure copper tone bars that form a slightly curved playing surface. The copper creates a warm, bell-like tone with a relatively short sustain. Thus the metallophonic interference, or the tonal friction between two intervals, is low.
