Created by master Ghanaian balaphon builder and player Christopher Doozie, these xylophones are carefully calibrated musical instruments that produces an amazingly resonant sound with warm, round tones greater than that of steel xylophones.

This West African percussion instrument includes 6 wooden notes with calabash gourd resonators of decreasing size (underneath). Traditionally crafted, this is a beautifully tuned instrument that is as inviting to the eye as to the hand. Mallet included.

6 Note Xylophone measures 20″L x 12″W x 10″T. . Size may vary slightly.
