Malletech 2.6 Octave Infinity Glockenspiel - Product Information
Malletech's design of the G2.6 Infinity Glock began by duplicating both the old steel formula and the dimensions of the best old Glockenspiel bars. Malletech didn't stop there, they redesigned the case, eliminated all sources of noise and revolutionized the suspension.
The essence of the Glockenspiel or Orchestra Bell tone is largely determined by the quality of the steel and dimensions of the bars. The great Glocks made in the first half of the 20th century were made from absolutely the hardest steel available. Malletech uses a hard steel creating big brilliant tone with a strong fundamental capturing the quality of instruments of yesteryear.
Malletech uses a three-point support system allowing each Glockenspiel bar to ring freely, almost as if it were suspended on air. Just three tiny rubber points touch the underside of the bar, leaving the top surface completely smooth and free of holes, screws or other suspension devices. A special nickel process that does not flake off like chrome and is more flexible, so the plating does not dampen the tone of your instrument. This process produces a uniform steel-gray, glare-free matte finish.
The Glockenspiel bar rails and extra-deep case are made from solid oak with brass latches and two oak carrying handles. The bar rails are completely suspended and do not touch the floor of the case. All the contact points, including the bottom exterior of the case are insulated with neoprene rubber and 100% wool felt, eliminating any case noise and leaving the space under the bars to act as one big reflecting and resonating chamber.
