A percussion instrument consisting of a set of metal bars which are sounded by being struck with a brass mallet. Each bar produces a specific tone. The bars are arranged in the same manner as a piano keyboard, and thus the glockenspiel is fully chromatic. The range is from G5 to C8 and sounds two octaves higher than written.
