Handchimes are an excellent and rewarding group instrument and the Suzuki Tonechimes are brilliantly made with an expressive and clear tone quality.
Each chime is carefully crafted from a lightweight alumiunium alloy which not only ensures that the sound is expressive and resonant but that they are easy to play and hold.
Sometimes referred to as hand bells these chimes have a rounded tone chamber and a fully adjustable striking mechanism which enables you to vary the sound and volume.
Great for use in the classroom, each individual chime is labeled with the note name along with its enharmonic equivalent in the case of accidentals. There is also a small diagram picturing the notes exact position of the musical stave.
This 25 note set has a range of G35 - G59 and comes complete in a solid, hard wearing carry case.
This particular set is seen as core product, but the range is fully expandable with various other complimentary sets available to order.
Rather uniquely this core set of 25 chime bars or bells can be expanded up to a fully chromatic 5 octave range by the addition of the following products:
HB-12A 3rd octave expansion kit
HB-12B 4th octave expansion kit
HB-7 5th octave expansion kit
