MIXED BAG DTF
This is one of several instruments from the DTF family including this, this and this. The idea in these instruments is that for each note there are several chime-like sounding elements, all tuned to the same pitch or octave displacements thereof, suspended together so that when they’re activated one way or another they produce a pretty jangle of tone at the given pitch. For the Mixed Bag version of the idea, each note group contains four very different sounding elements tuned to the given note: an aluminum tubular chime at a lower octave of the intended pitch, another such at a higher octave, a tuned cowbell-like thing, and a lower-pitched woody-sounding metal bar with added air resonator of the sort described here. Each “note” thus gives you a random jangle of four very different sounds all at the intended pitch. The sounding elements for each note are suspended from a small horizontal board at the top of a swayable steel upright. To sound them you give the board or upright a gentle shove, causing the sounding elements to hit against beater balls suspended between.
