Korogi EKO32 Desktop Xylophone

The EKO32 2.6 Padouk bar desktop xylophone has been become extremely popular for beginning percussionists and professionals. Because of the high grade of padouk and tuning processes make this instrument stand out from its competitors.

This instrument will work great on a desk or table top as well as any x style keyboard frame.

For beginning percussionists, these instruments are a great introduction into the world of mallet percussion. Too many times students are given a small bell kit that is poorly made and constructed. These instruments can be loud and harsh sounding which does not make it fun to play for beginners. By starting out on this desk top xylophone, the student is starting off on a real instrument. Its wood bars are much more pleasant to hear and respond well to many different types of mallets. A real instrument like this xylophone will be more interesting for the student and hopefully gets them to practice more.

The other great thing about these xylophones are their portability. The entire instrument weights about 8lbs and has a compact design. This makes storing and transporting your xylophone easy. If you plan on bringing this xylophone to school or out on gigs, I recommend picking up the padded soft case (Sold separately). This case has a padded exterior that is a brief case style. These cases are specifically made for the EKO32 xylophone and ideal for anyone that is planning on transporting their instrument.

Like stated earlier, these xylophones are also used by professionals. Because of its light weight and compact size, this instrument works perfectly for pit orchestras. Working in tight situations, you can position this instrument easily to fit in your setup. The instrument always can work well for full ensemble concerts. If you have to bring your own instruments, this makes it easy to haul to your gig.
