Not quite a bargan

Comments:

Price is great at $159.00 but quality of the bells is poor. Although they look good, the pitch isn't consistent and some bigger bells have a pitch higher than others four bells away. I think it has something to do with the thickness of each bell. The thinner the bell, the lower the pitch. Also some bells have a nice sustain in the ringing, others do not.

Weiss Bell Tree

Comments:

I purchase products from you for my son who is a high school band director and professional percussionist. He comments that, " your products are clearly the best quality and hold up extremely well." He particularly liked the feature of the bell tree that it could be mounted as needed.

good value

Comments:

At first my intention was to send this back and get the Meinl which I found out was back ordered. Earl, the extremely thorough customer service rep, modified the return "window" on these so I could use them in the show I needed them for. After doing the run they sort of wore on me and I have decided to keep them. Don't get me wrong, they do sound quite good. I feel the LP tree I compared them to sounded better, but not by much and the $100 difference just doesn't seem worth after using them. They will be on my stand for my next show starting next week.

Great sound!

Comments:

Excellent sounding instrument at a significantly discounted price. I use this regularly for professional performances. The mounting clamp may need some additional washers to aid in secure mounting (it's a heavy instrument) but for the price this can't be beaten!

Good sound, but mount needs tweaking.

Comments:

Beautiful sound for good price. Like the supplied brass mallets. But... mounting bar does not come set with best installation, bolts on clamp were installed backwards, and clamp does not come with washers and rubber plate needed to keep unit from sliding down a poll. Suggest altering rubber washers and brass sleeve positioning so tree is evenly spaced on the stand. If you look at the photo above you'll see there is too much space at the top of the rod and all the rubber washers are at the top. If you split them up and move two rubber sets to bottom, the tree is centered better and has beneficial rubber washers above and below.
