Xylophone: A member of the percussion family. It is constructed of tuned wooden blocks arranged in keyboard style. The player may use two soft mallets for play. The pitch of each bar is dependent on its length and thickness and may be struck with sticks of varied hardness.

Xylorimba: An extension of the Xylophone. Two players can play it simultaneously. Since it is much larger, it has an extended range.
