The Duo is a distinctive instrument with an ergonomic curved design. Accessible from both sides, this instrument can be enjoyed by up to four players. Tuned to the pentatonic scale, the left and right hand side are mirrored and the scale is C-major spanning 2 octaves from C4 to C6.

The notes of the Duo have no wires or strings and are individually and securely attached to the resonators for maximum vibration with incredible tones and resonance.

The Duo can be built with individual notes of aluminium, hardwood or GRP. Each of these materials gives a distinct sound when played. The aluminium will produce a bright, clear tone when struck, hardwood produces a strong, deep, resonant sound while GRP is fast and punchy.

Choose the right Duo

  • Duo Cupla: a clever mix of half aluminium notes and half GRP notes on black resonators.
  • Duo Jumeau: all aluminium notes on black resonators.
  • Duo Gemina: all GRP notes on indigo resonators
  • Duo Kasinda: all hardwood notes on orange resonators
  • Duo Besso: half aluminium notes and half hardwood notes on black resonators
  • Duo Kembar: half GRP notes and half hardwood notes on black resonators

The curvaceous design is not just about looking stylish. The wave makes it easier for individuals with limited range of movement, or players in wheelchairs, to reach all of the notes. Each player is slightly offset from each other, making it useful for players with special needs who may find direct eye contact difficult.

Playing the Duo is effortless and so friends, siblings, classmates, colleagues or even complete strangers can come together, explore with rhythm and make some great music!

High-Use We have designed heavy-duty versions of several our instruments; ideal for high use or unsupervised applications, where less durable fixtures and fittings may suffer from wear and tear. Heavy-duty versions have black anodized aluminium resonators instead of the coloured ABS with polyurethane caps on the end of each resonator. The notes are securely mounted onto high density poly-ethylene back-boards. Finally, stainless steel security fixings offer unparalleled durability.
