These are a smaller version of our popular Hot Spike tone bars (designed for old classic 1920’s Oahu steels). These are a very simple rounded bar made from our ceramic composite material, unique to RMSC. The combination of these clays and our custom glazes creates a very versatile bar that can deliver a wider tonal pallet than the traditional “Steel on Steel” voicing.
RMSC is the first to explore the world of possibilities that a ceramic tone bar can offer, and are pleased to see others trying to offer something similar & that truly is the greatest form of flattery!!
The diameter or hand profile on these is almost 22mm (7/8″) compared to the Hot Spike at about 29mm (1-1/16″).
