Toy Glockenspiel

Two mono mic positions on a toy glock to add sparkle to your mix...

The story

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.

  • Its exactly what it says it is...

    Ita a Toy Piano. Its been recorded well. Albeit in Mono. But its sounds good and it plays well. It might not be massively inspiring to some, but it's well worth putting in your arsenal.

  • Nicely sampled another toy instrument

    I am having fun with this toy series : such a cute sound of toy instrument. The sound is nice, and very easy to play.

  • A playable instrument from a toy

    As someone who loves toy instruments, I was excited to hear this sample pack, and it didn't disappoint. The samples are well recorded, and there's an innocence and purity to the sounds that is really great. The inclusion of multiple mics is a nice touch, and adds to the flexibility. There are some occasional thumps in the samples. It's impossible to say whether it's due to the playing technique or the construction of the instrument. Regardless, this is a very cute and fun glockenspiel.

  • A new lease of life for a tiny toy

    A full 5 octave+ range from an 8 note toy can't be bad. The velocity layers give realistic character too plus mic options.
