tonal range

Below is the tonal range of tuned percussion instruyments and timpani. Don't forget that the note you write for a glockenspiel and xylophone will sound in a different octave from where your write the note. For example if you wrote a middle C for the xylophone it would sound the C on the 3rd space of the treble stave.
