  • Item Details

    Fall Creek Glockenspiels are prestigious, hand-made instruments that combine the universally desired sound of vintage bells with updated case designs that allow them to sound even better. These are often considered to be the 'creme de la creme.'

    The RT-1000 model brings you the lauded sound of vintage Round Top glockenspiels, with 1.25" x 7/16" bars. The large F5 - F8 range covers nearly all of the repertoire out there.

    Each bar is made of high-carbon steel that resonates a shockingly long time, coated with a satin nickel plating that is guaranteed to never flake. This plating protects the steel from oxidizing and keeps light from reflecting off of the bars into your eyes during a performance.

    The resonator case on this set of bells is far deeper than normal, amplifying the fundamental tone and overtones far greater than a shallow case. Decay time of the overtones is also extended, which is not true of glockenspiels with individual resonators. It's also made out of beautiful darkly stained Oak, fitted with heavy duty nickel-plated latches and leather handles to keep everything safe and sound during transportation.

    A thick layer of felt separates the bottom of the case from the bar rails, allowing them to 'float' inside. This results in a nearly complete elimination of contact sound. The thunks you normally hear from a shallow case are no longer a problem with instrument.

    The rails are curved and the bar pins carefully plotted so that the bars are suspended precisely on the nodal points, further increasing their resonance.
