Stones are not mute. Being able to generate a sound from the oversized stones of the giant xylophone is a moving experience. Tapping the solid, heavy granite, marble or volcanic stone with a rubber hammer produces a wealth of sounds and harmonies which has an exciting effect on people.

Stonemasons recognise stones and their internal characteristics by their sound. Density, hardness and homogeneity of stones are shown during tapping by differing pitch and tonal quality.

Stone Xylophones are created from specially chosen blocks of black granite. This ensures high-quality sound and break-resistance.
