The Griffin creates rich, warm, full tones that resonate for up to 5 seconds. As the mallet gently sweeps across the chimes, sound waves float through the air, creating pleasing melodies that will be enjoyed by children and adults alike. The Griffin features a full, eleven note range tuned to the C Major pentatonic scale. The sound blends well with shorter, more staccato instruments like Piper and Merry. It includes 2 mallets attached with steel, plastic-coated wires. Griffin is fun for ages 2 through adults. Choose from a steel post or recycled plastic post, and 3 mounting options: in-ground, surface, or portable.
