MUSIC PLAYED BY TOUCH (Jul, 1947)
MUSIC PLAYED BY TOUCH
Designed as an educational toy, an electric xylophone introduced by Barr. Inc., of Rockford, Ill., produces a tune when a pointer is inserted in holes constituting the notes of special music sheets. Each contact closes a low-voltage circuit, energizing a solenoid and causing a glass tube to be struck. The instrument has nine notes, and operates on A.C. only. Six music sheets are available.
