Richard Mellish Buying a grown-up xylo- or metallophone (20) RE: Buying a grown-up xylo- or metallophone 10 Jan 21


Anyone wondering what intrument to take up should if at all possible find an opportunity to try various kinds. Depending on your previous experience (if any) and on how your brain is wired up, you are likely to find some kinds much easier than others. I dabbled with various kinds in my childhood and youth before settling on one kind to stick with.

For song accompaniment, a further consideration is that the instrument must be able to be played quietly enough not to smother the words. Many singers focus too much on the instrument and not enough on making their words clearly audible. I still find that aspect challenging with my choice of instruments, which are Anglo concertinas.
