  • In musical terms a Cadenza is an improvised dramatic solo performance. The UK manufacturers 'Percussion Play'  thought this was a good description for this petite instrument.
  • Cadenzas are scaled down outdoor musical instruments suitable for one player which, when played, immediately bring smiles to everyone in earshot
  • Strong, weather-proof and durable, the notes are arranged as a traditional xylophone or glockenspiel with low to high notes going from left to right
  • The notes or keys are available in Aluminium, Ipe (Hardwood) or GRP (type of fibreglass)   each of which gives its own distinct sound when played
  • There are no wires or strings as the notes are individually are securely attached to the resonators for maximum vibration with incredible tones and resonance
  • The resonators are available in a number of different colours
  • The instrument is designed for ground installation, surface or wall mounted
  • Cadenzas are tuned to the C-Major pentatonic scale covering two octaves
  • The Cadenza has a lovely curved design and is perfect for exploring possibilities with melody, harmony, and rhythm 
  • A pair of beaters is included, tethered with a nylon coated steel cable which can be fixed next to the chimes. If you prefer loose beaters, let us know
