Glockenspiel Overhauls and our ‘Resocase’ custom case fabrication
We have designed a new custom case for any glockenspiel make or model. The following pictures show three Deagan model 1560 glockenspiels which we completely overhauled, polished the nickel plated bars, re-tuned, and for which we built custom 2 3/4 inch deep resonant cases.
Custom Resonators with Adjustable Caps
If you are missing resonators or have a desire to upgrade your instrument with resonators that have individually tunable caps, we can build them for your marimba or xylophone.
Here are a few pictures of the custom resonators we made for this Deagan Artist’s Special #262 3.5 octave xylophone (click picture for larger views):

Complete instrument overhauls
The following picture is a Deagan Artist’s Special #264 Four Octave Xylophone, which we completely overhauled. Now that it is back to mint condition, It’s hard to believe this instrument was built around 1930 and is more than 70 years old!
Here is what it looked like before we started the work:
Deagan 844 “Drummers Special” xylophone
(frame restored and updated with wheels and extra bracing, and bars completely restored)
Leedy 642 marimba
(bars only restored, frame cleaned and bar post felt replaced)
