Almglocken Contra Set - F3 to B3 - Product Information

This is the Contra Almglocken Set. The big musical steel bells. Steve Weiss music has selected only the bells that are rich in tone and resonance for these sets.

  • Pitches include F3 - B3
  • The clappers have been removed from the Almglocken, as these bells are designed to be played with other implements
  • Can be mounted in a wide variety of ways.
  • C4 = c' = middle C as a reference point

Almglocken are bulbous steel bells used as a melodic or percussive instrument in music. Sometimes refereed to as Tuned Cowbells or Alpine bells, the different pitches were used by farmers to identify different animals in their heard. Over the years the bells have been re-crafted into producing naturally rustic, but rich and distinct tones for use in musical performances. The Weiss Almglocken are hand made in Germany and then hand selected by our overseas contact.
