What Is a Bass Tone Bar?
A bass tone bar is a single wooden bar percussion note designed to function within the bass and contra-bass regions of the musical spectrum.
The sound emanating from a bass tone bar is sonically satisfying and quite infectious. Both performers and listeners alike are drawn to these bass tones which can best be described as a thickening of the air.
