Head Cap

The head cap design provides richer fundamental tone, pitch definitions, and longer sustain. It also brings a wider sweet spot so it is easier to produce optimum tone. The head caps are silver colored, contrasting nicely with the gold-colored tubes for easier visual reference.

Damper Rod Clamp System (Patent applied for)

The damper rod clamp system has been redesigned for greater clamping strength and a more secure hold that prevents slippage when the damper pedal is pressed.

Damper Function

Feature image

By aligning damper movement with the front-to-back motion of the chime tubes when struck, damping response has been notably improved. It is now easier to stop the extended sustain of the chime tubes at the most musically appropriate time.
