The low notes of the Yantzee create a rich canvas of sound for the other melodic instruments to play over. The individual notes are made with two and a half inch aluminum bars that are resonated by three inch diameter tubes ranging from one foot to two and a half feet long. These low tones have remarkable projection for their size. Color is Blue
Like the pedal tones of a pipe organ, like distant cathedral bells, the low mellow tones of the Sunset on the Yantzee add depth to the sound field created by the other Harmony Park instruments.
Designed specifically to provide a bass range counterpart to our alto and soprano instruments, the Sunset on the Yantzee provides the full range of harmonies contained in the C major/A minor diatonic scale.
From the Basso Continuo of the Baroque era to the walking bass lines of stride piano and twelve bar blues, bass range instruments have provided depth and harmonic structure to ensembles throughout the ages.
Inside the Box: 10 note resonated metalophone, aluminum bars, 2 mallets, 2 brown recycled plastic posts for in-ground install.
