The aluminium bars of the Pegasus give an incredibly resonant and sustained sound that both adults and children find enchanting.  The Pegasus offers a playing experience which can be described as peaceful and relaxing.  The appeal of the Pegasus is the pure escapism that playing it allows, enabling you to experience the freedom of pentatonic improvising.

Metallophones existed in China during the 7th century. By the 17th century, metallophones reached northern Europe through Indonesia where there are many different types with names such as slentem, gender and saron.  They were originally used as practice instruments but were accepted as performance instruments in the 18th century. In the 20th century, the music-education methods of Carl Orff added metallophones to many classrooms around the world.
