A handmade mechanical glockenspiel designed by Herbert Bächli in 1983. Tunes are programmed by inserting plastic pins into holes in the barrel, making it a modern version of the first mechanical carrillons and organs, which were programmed by inserting metal pegs into the barrel. Bächli's original version had wooden pegs.
