Designed for children ages 2 to 12 years and Adults, The Aria has a beautiful modern-styled design and an even more beautiful sound. Its nine aluminum keys are arranged into a C Major pentatonic scale and fastened to flexible cords to reduce vibration through the frame and produce a low, soothing sound. The keys are suspended from four powder-coated steel branches which give it a unique appearance and provide a perfect place to hang the mallets when they are not in use. Steel cables with a plastic coating connect the mallets to the rest of the instrument, ensuring they will not get lost. Its size and arrangement of notes make it particularly well-suited for school aged children, but of course it is made to be played and enjoyed by aspiring musicians of all ages and abilities. The standard package comes mounted on a recycled plastic post which can be installed into the ground at any specified height. An optional steel post and surface mount are also available for an additional fee. Contact one of our qualified playground experts for more information.
