The Studio 49 alto bars are carefully made to have an acoustically accurate tone chamber, which gives the instrument excellent intonation. These instruments are excellent for classroom use and are durably made for years of music-making. Mallets are not included with these alto bars, but we recommend using a yarn alto bar mallet, like the Studio 49 S40.
Bars measure 32 x 18 mm and are made of bright Rosewood with harmonic overtone tuning.
Available notes: 1-12 (C1, C#1, D1, D#1, E1, F1, F#1, G1, A1, Bb1, B1)
