Leedy rosewood xylophone model 992 from the late 1930's. George Hamilton Green split-frame 3 1/2 octave. Breaks down to half the size. Beautiful 1 1/2" wide refinished rosewood bars. Refinished white oak rails. New felts. buffed pins and new rubber pin guards. New cord. Brass resonators refinished in matte nickel enamel. Refinished stand in matte nickel enamel. New wheels. Like a new instrument. Bars have never been tuned but are A=440. Original Leedy tuning. This is a gem of an instrument with a very woody sound quality-the way a xylophone should sound. Preferred over Deagan instruments by many professionals. Leedy instruments used by the New York Philharmonic.
