The Cavatina is a new addition to our range of outdoor metallaphones. In music, a Cavatina is an Italian term meaning a melody performed by a soloist distinguished by its simplicity, songlike melody, and modest scale.
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. Set over black resonators, the Cavatina is tuned to the C-Major diatonic scale covering two octaves.
The notes or keys are available in standard aluminium or with rainbow-coloured anodised aluminium notes (at a small additional cost) which is perfect for those learning music with a rainbow colour coded scale.
There are no wires or strings as the notes are individually and securely attached to the resonators for maximum vibration with incredible tones and resonance. The instrument is designed for ground or surface installation, but can also be wall mounted.
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.
