The Sonor GBKX 100 Meisterklasse bass xylophone comes
with Palisono bars with overtone tuning, measuring 44 x 20 mm. Palisono is
a high-density fiberglass material developed by Sonor. It is highly resistant
to changes in temperature and humidity, making it extremely pitch stable in all
climates. The timbre of Palisono bars is slightly brighter than rosewood, but
equally resonant and pleasing to the ear.
The pitch range of the GBKX 100 is c-a1 diatonic, with c1
being middle C. The resonator box is made of pine and features six
resonance chambers. Brackets are included for use with accessory legs or
the Basis Trolley system. The GBKX 100 comes with one pair of SCH 15
mallets and coordinates with chromatic extension GBKX 200.
