Another wonderful custom mallet instrument - the Wrenchenspiel sounds so much cooler than you ever imagined wrenches could! With all the different mallets (and hammers) featured in this instrument, it can sing a sparkly soft lullaby or a powerful, bright ballad.
We like to mention things that these custom instruments sound similar to. For instance, this one sounds a bit like a celeste or a glockenspiel that’s a bit rough around the edges. I like those for points of reference, but I think it’s also important to let the instruments speak for themselves. The wrenchenspiel has a unique sound and a lot of unique use cases. I hope you’ll share some of your wrenchenspiel work with us over at the Soundpaint discord!
