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 octaves, 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?
