THE GLOCKENSPIEL or BELL LYRE
The brilliant, vibrant singing bell-tone of the glockenspiel
has become a prominent feature of countless bands in recent
years, accenting their melodies and adding a totally new tone
quality to the traditional brass and wood wind instruments.
It does not require very much knowledge of music to play
the glockenspiel. What you do need is accurate coordination of
hand and eye, so you will be sure to hit the right notes, for
the tone of the instrument carries far and wide.
The glockenspiel has twenty-five tone bars. These are shown
in Fig. 114, together with the corresponding written notes.
