This is a toddlers toy glockenspiel that I think I bought from a garage-sale hosted at my brothers house. (I'm not sure if it was actually his though)

It's got close and far (mono, sorry) mic positions, and I think I tuned it slightly to center A440. Theres a fair bit of velocity control here and I've extended the key range, but it really shines in one of the octaves best.

When I use it, I often find it best acts to accentuate other instruments in arrangement and add some extra sparkle or glitter.
