Treeworks Chimes at NAMM 2015 (VIDEO)
In this video from NAMM 2015, TreeWorks’ James Bratton shows us the new products from the company for this year.
First up is the 140 bar InfiniTree, which is over 4′ long. Each side, high or low, can be used as a stand-alone chime or together for seemingly never-ending sweeps. Next is the TRE555 DreamTree Chorus Tuning chime, which features a high note and a low note ringing at the same time to give you a fuller sound. The ZenTree has stair-step tuning, so each time it’s swept through, the same ten notes pass in a seven-series set.
For 2015, TreeWorks has also introduced a new line of triangles. They are studio-grade triangles, 4″ to 10″, made from heat-treated steel and have a lot of overtones. Also new is the 3D Triangle, which is three triangles in one (4″, 6″, and 8″). The Triangle Pack includes a bag, a set of 4″, 5″, 6″ triangles, and beaters.
Bratton also demonstrates many of TreeWorks’ existing product lines, such as the Tre44 Studio Chimes, Multi-Trees with chimes and triangles on one bar, the Flat Bar chime that offers a short sustain, the double-row chime that’s popular with drum corps, the Spring tree, and finally the Energy chimes that are great for meditation practice.
