Mrrzy Buying a grown-up xylo- or metallophone (20) RE: Buying a grown-up xylo- or metallophone 08 Jan 21

No desire to. Took music for 10 years in French school, that was enough. Besides, all I want to learn to play are the songs I already know... I want to learn to go from heard sung note to heard played note, not from eye to note. To learn a new song, I listen to it, and memorize it, then sing it. So I never need to read music. Topic for a separate queation, that.

So, anyway, I just spent a while in a music store. Apparently I will want a xylo rather than a metallo as the metal one I tried played way too high for how low I sing. I could get one and only play the bottom but that seemed silly. What the helpful staff [get it?] showed me was something called a bell set, which looked perfect, just like a 2-layer xylophone with maybe 2 octaves, but the sound, like I said, way too high.

Are there such things as bass (or at least way lower) bell sets?
