Slang term for xylophone
, a tuned melodic percussion
instrument, made of either wood, kelon, or a similar resonant
material. Often having a musical range
of at least two octave
s, xylophones have a very articulate
and characteristic sound. They are a very important instrument in today's bands and orchestras.
OK percussion, sort out the parts, and make sure you remember there is a xylophone solo during this piece.
Did you guys hear that wicked xylophone solo in Sabre Dance?
