Crystalophone - Svaritanum chromatic crystal harp
Denis Kashcheev, the founder of the workshop Svaritanum, is proud to present a new instrument - the world's first chromatic crystal phone with a variable sustain. More than a year the work on the construction was conducted. The instrument implements innovative ideas, first put into practice. The resonators are located at an angle, to each other, which made it possible to make the design compact and convenient in playing. The system of muting sustain allows you to play fast songs in any key, using xylophone technique. The plus is that the notes in the playing area are arranged in a row and easily accessible. Crystalophone has a unique sound that will embellish any melody. On the instrument are available various ways of playing - chopsticks, wet hands and various advanced techniques. The design combined the advantages of a vibraphone and a crystal harp. Since the tubes are both resonators and amplifiers of sound, the design is very compact in comparison with a vibraphone. At the request of the customer, the tubes can be coated with various colored compounds to facilitate the game. Work has already started on a series of instruments based on a crystalophone. We, the team of Svaritanum, are immensely pleased with the opportunity to bring new ideas to the world of music and expand opportunities for creativity.
