Xylophones have been an important product for Korogi since the company began building desk xylophones for Japanese schools in 1949. Since then, Korogi craftsmen have continually developed quality instruments for the youngest of beginners, as well as some of the world’s finest professional instruments.
The same stringent grading and selection methods are used for selecting xylophone bars as with the finest Korogi marimbas. Honduras Rosewood, Padouk, and Karinwood bars are matched not only for quality of wood color, grain and density, but also tone quality, sustain, and projection across the entire range of the keyboard.
Experience the quality, craftsmanship, and beauty of Korogi xylophones, and perhaps your best performance ever.

While I believe you could probably figure out a way to hang this from the wall with some kind of hook system, I would not recommend it as it was not built with that intent. My concern would be if it were to fall for any reason, it would cause a lot of damage.
The instrument is fairly compact and has a low profile which makes it easier to store under a bed or in a closet when not in use. This is the recommended method of storing. We also sell cases for these instruments. Below is a link to the case.
You can play a lot of rep on a 3.0, however you may end up playing in a different octave than the original part. Most full size concert xylophones are 3.5 or 4 octaves. The Korogi 3.0 is a great portable instrument that can be used as a practice xylophone or for certain performances.Jan 26, 2016
